Crane concerns close traffic


Concerns about a construction crane closed traffic on Highway 51 Wednesday night.

State Patrol officials tell us a section of the highway was closed near Cedar Creek for about 10 minutes.

Authorities say they were worried the crane would collapse, so they used a truck to push the boom of the crane.

Traffic reopened around 6:00 p.m.
