CLEVELAND -- Overnight Monday ODOT reopened the remaining westbound lanes on I-90, allowing traffic to flow freely in both directions.

The highway was closed following an accident Saturday morning where a dump truck with a raised trailer crashed into a pedestrian bridge above the interstate.

The accident happened on the I-90 westbound lanes between E. 260th Street and E. 152nd Street around 6:45 a.m Saturday.

Police say a truck from Big Blue Trucking out of Warren, Ohio, was traveling with a raised trailer when it hit the bridge. After hitting the bridge, the truck then rolled over. 

Unsafe conditions forced the Ohio Department of Transportation to bring in cranes to dismantle the pedestrian bridge that was damaged. 

Jennifer Ciaccia with the Cleveland Police Department tells Channel 3 the truck driver Michael Edwards, 35, will be cited for all appropriate traffic violations.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will also be apart of the investigation.  Troopers will inspect the truck for violations.
