For Immediate Release
July 1, 2015
West Side Update
Crews are on site cleaning up the watered down ethanol and foam. Clean up has to happen before ODOT engineers and bridge inspectors can start physically examining the bridge.
It will take several hours for ODOT to determine the structural integrity of the bridges.
Traffic impacts have not changed:
· I-270 north and south mainline is open
· One lane of I-70 east is now open, but drivers are forced to exit to I-270 south
· I-70 west traffic must exit at I-270 north
· I-270 south traffic cannot get onto I-70 east, drivers are forced to take I-70 west
