is running smoothly today after authorities re-opened a portion of Interstate
70 just one day after a partial collapse of an overpass.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation continues to investigate
the collapse of 120 tons of concrete and steel from the
overpass, 15 miles south
near the Interstate 79 junction.
Some of that debris fell into the eastbound lanes. One woman was
injured when her van struck some of the debris.
PennDOT had closed lanes in both directions and created a three-mile
detour between Exits 21 and 24, but all lanes have been reopened, a spokesman
told “Land Line Now.”
The spokesman said traffic returned to westbound lanes Wednesday
afternoon, Dec. 28, and eastbound lanes reopened about 10 p.m.
