MEDFORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — MassDOT has fully reopened Interstate 93 South in Medford, following a truck crash at the Roosevelt Circle overpass.

On Monday, an overweight truck struck the Roosevelt Circle overpass. Until around 5 p.m. on Thursday, since the crash, at least one southbound lane has been closed for construction.

“I’m pleased to say that the contractors most of the damaged material, as of this afternoon, and in the next few hours, we expect they will be clearing up the roadway underneath of the overpass so that [I-93] can be restored to all four lanes of traffic,” Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver said, according to WBZ-TV.

MassDOT reported that the repairs of the overpass could take up to eight months to complete.

The man driving the truck has been fined $210 for driving a vehicle that was nine inches above the 14-foot height limit. Massachusetts State Police reported the man was from Alabama but he remains unidentified.
