The northbound lanes of Highway 175 near American Family Field have reopened after being closed for nearly five hours Tuesday evening as crews cleaned up from a crash.
A semi-trailer truck struck the Interstate 94 overpass about 1:40 p.m., according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.
Photos posted to Twitter by the Sheriff's Office show that the roof of a large shipping container resting on the truck bed was shredded when it struck the overpass.
Pieces of debris were in the roadway, the photos showed. The container has a Kohler label and a sign that reads, "oversize load."
Officials will also assess any damage to the overpass, the sheriff's office said.
As of 6:21 p.m., all lanes of traffic were reopened.
UPDATE: The closure of n/b I-175 lane two beneath the e/b I-94 overpass/bridge will be long-term as assessment of damage to the overpass continues and the damaged semi-trailer is removed. pic.twitter.com/LlB5aZ49hC
