GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming transportation official says it will take a year to fully repair an Interstate 90 bridge over South Highway 59 in Gillette after a semitrailer struck it.

The Gillette News Record reports Thursday (https://bit.ly/1hEL5Ij ) that the cost of the damage to the bridge is estimated to be more than $1 million. Authorities say the damage happened Wednesday morning when a semitrailer carrying an oversize load exceeding the clearance limit for the underpass hit it.

No one was hurt.

Wyoming Department of Transportation supervisor Max Morbeto says traffic on eastbound I-90 on the bridge has been diverted to only the left passing lane and the speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour. Morbeto says it will be a year before the bridge is repaired.
