EMERGENCY REPAIRS: Backhoe Hits I-80 Bridge
A portion of Interstate-80 near Altoona could be closed for more than a week after a bridge was damaged by construction equipment.
A backhoe was riding on a trailer on Highway 65, traveling north when it hit the bridge at around noon, Thursday.
The DOT is planning emergency repairs. Some westbound lanes of I-80 will be closed during those repairs until next Friday.
