Highway contractors spent several hours today repairing the guard rail along a half- mile stretch of the interstate.
And environmental cleanup crews worked to contain between 800 and one-thousand gallons of diesel fuel that spilled during the accident.
What'll take longer to fix though is the damage to the concrete surface of the bridge.
