TURNER, Kan. - The bridge ramp from the Turner Diagonal to eastbound Interstate 70 is closed after an accident early Saturday morning.

A dump truck crashed into the bridge around 5:15 Saturday morning, damaging the ramp structure. All westbound lanes of I-70 were shut down for about three hours while crews cleared the wreck and evaluated the damage. Those lanes are now open again.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, the ramp will be closed until crews can finish all necessary repairs and make sure it is safe for traffic.
