Breaking: I-90 Bridge Closed; Truck struck underpass on Butler Spaeth

(Gillette, Wyo.) A truck carrying a track hoe struck the underside of the I-90 Bridge over Butler Spaeth around 1:58 this afternoon. Currently the westbound portion of I-90 is down to one lane, and Butler Spaeth is closed just north of Boxelder past Hillcrest Elementary. "The tractor trailer was trying to go under the bridge and the last section of the bridge was lower than the rest, and the vehicle collided with it," said Lt. Brent Wasson. The Department of Transportation is currently checking the damage and the road will remain closed until they decide it's safe. The City suggests everyone detour around the area using Highway 59 or Garner Lake Road. #county17 #news
