Piece of Columbus bridge falls on roadway

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Both lanes of the 11th Street underpass in Columbus are now open after part of the bridge fell into oncoming traffic.

According to the city engineer, an 18 to 24 inch block of concrete has been removed.

Crews with the city of Columbus' engineering department were on the scene Monday afternoon to inspect both side of the bridge.

Only the eastbound lane was closed earlier while crews removed the debris. It has since reopened to traffic.
