HUMBOLDT — The Georgia Road overpass crossing U.S. 169 will remain closed “for months,” said Darrin Petrowsky, an engineer with the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The overpass sustained damage in a fatality accident, when a semitruck blasted up the embankment and slammed into the support girders.

Three of five pre-stressed concrete girders were damaged from the embankment to the first pier, Petrowsky said, and must be replaced. The deck over the girders also must be replaced.
