HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) - Motorists can expect disruptions on Interstate 90 in the Hartford area this week as crews repair damage to an overpass.

Officials say a truck hauling an excavator was too tall and hit the structure on Monday afternoon. No injuries were reported, but the crash resulted in the temporary shutdown of the overpass and one lane of the interstate.

State Transportation Department Area Engineer Travis Dressen says drivers can expect closures of one of the interstate’s westbound lanes throughout the week as repairs are made.

Dressen tells the Argus Leader newspaper that a similar incident last year resulted in more than $400,000 in damage to the overpass, and the damage from Monday’s incident appears to be worse.
