Southbound I-35 was shut down for a short time Friday near Cumming after two backhoes being hauled by a semi struck an overpass bridge.

The Iowa State Patrol says the accident happened a little after 2:00 p.m. Friday. Crews shut down the road and detoured traffic around the bridge using the exit and entrance ramps. Bridge traffic on Cumming Avenue was also stopped.

A Department of Transportation inspection team has evaluated the structure and found it safe. Southbound traffic is no longer being detoured off of the interstate.
