Ohio 61 re-opens

Norwalk Reflector Staff • Feb 15, 2013 at 11:13 AM

Authorities closed Ohio 61 south between South Norwalk Road and Johnson Road sometime after dusk Thursday after chunks of concrete fell from the U.S. 20 overpass.

Ohio Department of Transportation spokeswoman Christine Myers said a couple pieces of concrete fell from the bridge due to deterioration of the concrete along the bridge’s edges.

Myers said to her knowledge, nobody was injured.

Initially, Myers said workers were scheduled to make repairs Friday and she wasn't sure when the road would re-open.

However, by 1:15 a.m., Ohio 61 had re-opened.

No portion of U.S. 20 was closed, Myers said.
