A bridge that carries traffic between the Hoan Bridge and Interstate 94/43 in Milwaukee has reopened Monday after a truck hauling lumber lost its cargo.

The lumber truck was heading south on the bridge at about 7:15 a.m. toward the Hoan when it spilled its load. Some of the lumber spilled over the bridge and some fell onto a parking lot below, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department dispatcher.

No injuries were reported, according to the dispatcher.

The bridge reopened to traffic at 10:35 a.m.
