MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- State transportation officials say it could take months before traffic begins moving normally along an Interstate 65 bridge following a fatal crash.
Two tractor trailers crashed into each other in the northbound lanes of the General W.K. Wilson Jr. Bridge Thursday and burst into flames shortly afterward.
Reports say Vince Calametti, Alabama Department of Transportation regional engineer says the bridge may not be fully functional until for at least two to three months. Calametti says drivers will be allowed to travel in the far northbound lanes of the bridge, but repairs to the scorched roadway will likely lead to closures
