Michigan bridge to be rebuilt after damage from truck

BRIGHTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a bridge over an interstate in southeastern Michigan will be rebuilt after being struck by a truck hauling construction equipment.

The truck hit a sign on the bridge over eastbound Interstate 96 on Wednesday in Livingston County's Brighton Township and bent several beams underneath the overpass. No injuries were reported, but the crash snarled traffic during the evening commute.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area. The Michigan Department of Transportation says the damaged portion of the bridge will be demolished and replaced.
