Lanes on I-20 East in Lexington Co. reopened after dump truck hits bridge

LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - Officials have reopened lanes on I-20 and U.S. Highway 1 after a dump truck collided with an overpass Tuesday morning.

SCDOT blocked off I-20 East at mile marker 58 after the incident happened. Since then, repairs have been made to the overpass.

Crews placed a barrier underneath the damaged portion of the bridge to catch any falling debris that may come loose.

The truck was traveling east on I-20 when it hit the bridge at 4:30 a.m.

Officials have confirmed traffic is now flowing normally in that area.
