August 7, 2018 GMT

Westbound lanes on the Mormon Bridge over the Missouri River have been closed because of a deck failure, the Nebraska Department of Transportation said Monday.

The emergency closure was announced about 1 p.m. No Interstate 680 traffic was being allowed from Iowa into Nebraska.

I-680 traffic was being diverted to I-480, said Vicki Kramer, a DOT spokeswoman.

Kramer said crews hoped to have one lane back open late Monday afternoon.
