Last week a truck carrying heavy equipment dropped its load onto the bridge deck and left a hole 4 feet wide.

Ohio Department of Transportation officials awarded an emergency repair contract last week. But the repairs will take a little while longer before the travel lane of U.S. 22 East is open again.

"We're looking at probably a 2-to-3-week lane closure on the Veterans Memorial Bridge and also in the northbound lane of Route 7 in the passing lane," said Ty Justice, ODOT transportation administrator.

Crews started working on the bridge on Monday.
