COLORADO SPRINGS — City of Colorado Springs crews have cleared the debris from an incident with a tractor-trailer that damaged the underside of the N El Paso St bridge at Platte Ave.
All of Platte Ave is now open while N El Paso St at the overpass remains closed for the time being.
On Thursday, a forklift on a flatbed truck struck the bottom of the bridge, bringing down plywood sheeting and minor supports on the underside.
City engineers said there was no danger of the bridge collapsing.
Platte was closed from Wahsatch to Prospect starting mid-day Thursday until Friday at noon.
