One lane of the Broken Arrow Expressway under U.S. Highway 169 was closed for several hours Monday morning while a Oklahoma Department of Transportation crew inspected the bridge decking.

Tulsa Police say an eastbound semi carrying a farm tractor struck the bridge just before 7 a.m.

The tractor received minor damage.

ODOT closed down the left lane of traffic to conduct an inspection of the bridge decking.

The lane was reopened to traffic about 2 hours later.  No word on the extent of damage, if any to the bridge decking.
