UPDATE – Overpass Closed After Being Struck By Truck

UPDATE – ODOT now says that U.S. 30 westbound in that area will be closed starting 12/23 and lasting for several days to prepare for removal of the damaged beam and bridge deck.


An overpass over U.S. 30 in Allen County is closed indefinitely after being struck by a boom truck.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says Slabtown Road, over U.S. 30, north of Lima, is closed due to the bridge strike.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the truck was westbound on U.S. 30 around 4:15 Tuesday afternoon and didn’t have its boom lowered all the way and struck the overpass.

The impact caused structural damage to the overpass, and Slabtown Road will be closed indefinitely.

U.S. 30 remains open.
