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.
