MoDOT said the ramp was closed for several hours until the vehicle was eventually freed.

Both the on and off ramps at Highway 36 on the Missouri River Bridge were closed earlier Monday as the semi made its way across the bridge. However, these ramps are now back open.

Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Missouri State Highway Patrol worked to clear the vehicle.

Not the best start to our weekend as cloudy skies and a few rain showers return to the forecast for Saturday. Do expect only a few showers today, certainly will not be a washout. High temps today will get into the upper 50s. By tonight, showers are again possible with lows in the mid 40s.
