    Traffic was backed up on Route 9 south in Berlin and spilled over onto Routes 71 and 372 after a truck hit an overpass Wednesday afternoon.

    Police said a vehicle struck the Christian Lane overpass on Route 9 south in Berlin. The truck appears to have been towing a backhoe.

    Christian Lane was closed to traffic while crews worked to inspect the bridge. The overpass has since reopened.

    One lane of Route 9 south was closed and traffic was heavily backed up starting at exit 27. Traffic spilled over onto Routes 71 and 372 in New Britain, which were also delayed.
