Pieces of Vermont Interstate Bridge Damage Vehicles

February 8, 2013

Vermont State Police say a section of an Interstate 89 bridge in Colchester came loose, damaging seven vehicles that crossed the bridge.

Police say that just before 9 p.m. Tuesday a portion of a bridge plate in the right lane of the northbound interstate near the Colchester weigh station came loose.

There were no injuries, but two of the affected vehicles had to be towed from the scene.

Police say the damage was flattened tires and undercarriage damage to the passing vehicles.

There’s no word what caused the problem, but the right lane of the interstate was closed and Transportation Agency crews are working Wednesday to repair the problem.
