COLUMBUS, Ohio — Authorities earlier had shut down two lanes on I-71 northbound just north of Gemini Place due to reports of falling concrete from a bridge.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says concrete reportedly fell from the East Powell Road bridge just before 2:30 p.m. and hit vehicles. Inspectors were sent to check out the bridge.

The lanes have since been reopened just after 4 p.m.
