    All westbound lanes of Interstate 30 are back open after a truck hauling scrap apparently struck the St. Francis Avenue overpass Thursday morning in Dallas.

    The Dallas County Sheriff's Office said the truck collided with the bridge and closed all westbound lanes of the highway while crews inspected a support beam underneath the overpass and cleaned up debris.

    The right two lanes of westbound I-30 were back open by about 11:40 a.m., and bridge inspectors for the Texas Department of Transportation cleared the bridge and allowed for all lanes to reopen by about 3:20 p.m.

    The support beam had visible damage and appears to have been bent in the collision, but the St. Francis Avenue overpass is open to traffic.
