Concrete falls on cars traveling I-91 in Meriden


Chunks of concrete fell onto motor vehicles traveling on Interstate 91 in Meriden Monday evening, according to state officials.

The concrete crumbled off the Murdock Avenue Bridge onto cars traveling on I-91 around 5:15 p.m., according to Connecticut Department of Transportation officials.

Several cars were damaged by the falling debris. However, DOT officials did not have an exact total.

No injuries were reported.

The "haunching" section of the bridge was removed by DOT crews.

DOT officials said the "structural integrity" of the bridge had nothing to do with the concrete crumbling off the bridge.

DOT officials inspected the bridge and determined it was safe.
