(KMOV) – A large container carrying fiberglass created a hazard for drivers on the Poplar Street Bridge late Tuesday morning.
The debris came to rest in the eastbound lanes of the interstate around 10:30 a.m. The container was picked up and removed by the Illinois Department of Transportation within a half-hour.
One lane was closed until crews cleared the scene. Authorities were still trying to figure out who the container belonged to.
Interstate 55, Interstate 64, and Highway 40 cross the eight-lane bridge that connects St. Louis and East St. Louis
