Benson Bridge Hit Again

Posted June 10, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— For the fourth time, a truck has hit the Highway 50 overpass on I-95 closing the bridge.

Crews say it will be several weeks before the bridge is re-opened. The overpass connects Benson with points east in Johnston County.

The highway patrol says the bridge is lower than most, but well within legal limits. Troopers say truckers are stacking their loads too high to fit under the bridge.
