WAUWATOSA – Traffic was backed up on northbound Highway 45 Saturday afternoon after pieces of concrete fell from a bridge onto the highway.

Debris fell from the Bluemound Bridge around 12:30pm. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department shut down two of the three northbound lanes. Crews had to make emergency repairs to the bridge before Bluemound and lanes on Highway 45 could reopen.

No cars were affected by the falling concrete and no injuries were reported. The incident caused traffic delays from the Zoo Interchange to the Hale Interchange.
