Part of overpass collapses along I-55
St. Louis, MO – Interstate 55 re-opened early this (Friday) morning after a chunk of an overpass fell onto the highway last night.
The concrete fell from the bridge that takes Delor Street over I-55; it spread across all four northbound lanes.
A woman whose car hit the concrete was hurt, but her injuries are not life threatening.
It was only the sidewalk and railing of the overpass that fell; officials with MO-DOT say they continue to look into what caused the collapse.
I-55 was shut down for more than six hours before opening around 2:30 this morning.
