Stanislaus Street bridge in downtown Fresno is expected to reopen one lane by 10 a.m. Friday, city officials said.
The bridge was shut down Thursday after a city of Fresno truck, driving with the bucket lift extended, struck the bridge Wednesday.
Although the accident caused only minor damage, city officials closed the bridge as a precaution while its structural integrity was inspected.
Repairs are underway and the bridge is safe for driving.
The Stanislaus Street bridge is scheduled for demolition at a date to be determined because it doesn’t provide enough clearance for the coming high-speed trains. It will not be replaced. Instead, drivers can use the two-way Tuolumne Street bridge that opened this summer.
