Truck Impact Bends I-25 Overpass Girder About 4 Feet, Causes Delays

THORNTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Two lanes of southbound Interstate 25 remained blocked at 88th Avenue on Tuesday evening after a truck hit the overpass and caused serious damage.

The southbound backup extended all the way past E-470.

Stacey Stegman with the Colorado Department of Transportation said the impact caused a girder on the bridge to bend about four feet. CDOT sent engineers to inspect the bridge.

There was no indication of when the lanes will be reopened.
