NYACK, N.Y. (PIX11) – A tractor-trailer crashed into an overpass on southbound I-87 at exit 10 in Nyack on Thursday, shutting down multiple lanes of traffic for over 12 hours, officials said.
An over-height tractor-trailer transporting large pipes struck the South Broadway overpass around 6:45 a.m., according to New York State Police.
Traffic from the lane closures stretched for several miles. All lanes were reopened to traffic around 7 p.m.
The crash badly damaged two of the bridge’s eight girders, authorities said.
The South Broadway bridge was also closed to traffic and will undergo a full inspection, authorities said.
