PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Crews from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) worked overnight to repair the Broadway overpass in Providence after concrete starting crumbling down onto I-95 South Tuesday afternoon.

Rush hour traffic was worsened as RIDOT was forced to close two lanes of the highway near Exit 21 in order to clear the debris.

The agency reopened the lanes once it was safe to do so then crews returned later to make final repairs to the bridge. The work was completed by about 3 a.m. Wednesday.
