A portion of a pedestrian bridge fell early Friday onto a Detroit freeway, blocking traffic, police said.
No one was injured in the collapse onto westbound Interstate 94, Lt. Mike Shaw, a Michigan State Police spokesman, said in an email.
State police reported on Twitter that the agency was notified about 5:20 a.m. that part of the Townsend Pedestrian Bridge near Van Dyke Avenue had fallen.
The portion of the bridge over I-94’s eastbound lanes was still standing early Friday.
It wasn’t immediately known what caused the bridge to fall.
