COLBERT, Okla. -- The southbound lanes of US 69/75 came to a standstill for hours Friday after an oversized load turned out to be a little too large for the Red River overpass in Colbert.

The big rig's cargo got stuck, and traffic was stymied as workers labored to dislodge it.

Oklahoma State Troopers said no one was hurt, and the Department of Transportation inspected the overpass and said there was no structural damage.

The highway was re-opened in time for the Friday evening rush hour.
