Semi strikes overpass, portion of NB I-71 closed in Gallatin Co.

GALLATIN COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

A portion of northbound Interstate 71 is closed in Gallatin County after a truck carrying a piece of heavy equipment slammed the equipment into an overpass.

The crash happened at the 64 miles mark where I-71 runs under Kentucky 562.

The crash knocked chunks of concrete off the bridge that are so large, crews are have to use a jackhammer to break them up before moving them.

One of the northbound lanes of I-71 is open. Earlier, I-71 northbound lanes were closed at the Glencoe exit.
