U.S. 33 westbound was closed this morning after a dump truck with its bed raised struck the Beecher Gamble overpass today at about 8:45 a.m. The truck separated from the bed and traveled several hundred feet down the highway before stopping. According to a release from the Ohio Department of Transportation, the westbound lane of the road will be closed at U.S. 42 until ODOT engineers can check and approve the integrity of the overpass. Ramps from 33 westbound to Post Road, and vice versa, are closed as of press time. An email from the Union County Engineer’s Department said Beecher Gamble Road is closed between Jacobs Lane and Derio Road.
