KAUKAUNA (NBC 26) — Rose Hill Road and I-41 southbound in Outagamie County will remain closed until damage assessment is complete after a dump truck struck the overpass.

This is the second time that a dump truck has hit this overpass, the first was reported in June when a truck got stuck underneath the overpass, causing road closures.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation released that the southbound lanes on I-41 between Freedom Road and WIS 55 in Outagamie County were closed for 'several hours' after a dump truck hit the Rose Hill Road Bridge over I-41 this afternoon.

The Vandenbroek Kaukauna Fire Department released photos on their Facebook page of the scene.

Follow WIS 441 north to I-41.
