BOSSIER CITY, La. -

Traffic lanes on Airline Drive in Bossier City are now open after a trailer carrying a trackhoe failed to clear the overpass.

It happened around noon Wednesday northbound on Airline Drive at the I-20 overpass. Police say that the boom of the trackhoe struck the bottom of the eastbound span of the I-20 bridge causing hydraulic fluid from the trackhoe to spill onto the road.

The Airline Drive turn lanes to both east and westbound I-20 were briefly closed as crews worked to clean up the roadway.

After an assessment of the bridge, officials with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development say that the integrity of the bridge is sound.

No injuries were reported.
