GRASS VALLEY — The CHP says a Grass Valley overpass on Highway 49 was damaged Wednesday when it was hit by equipment being carried on a large truck.

Just before 4 p.m., southbound Highway 49 had to be closed off at Dorsey Drive due to the incident. The CHP reports the southbound lanes have reopened.

Crews were at the scene to clean up some debris and evaluate the damage, which Caltrans says was only “cosmetic.” Engineers determined the overpass was safe and the CHP says it will be repaired at a later date.

It is unknown how much damage the equipment or the truck sustained.
