Truck payload snags support beam on Union Street bridge overpass

BDN staff reports

BANGOR, Maine — A truck’s forklift and steel beam frame payload heading I-95-southbound failed to completely clear the Union Street bridge overpass around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The impact of the truck, driven by Ronald Bealieu of Owen J. Folsom, Inc., caused possible damage to a beam and PVC sheathing around utility lines running under the bridge. State police used a tape measure to assess the structural damage to the overpass.

“It came down through from Stillwater Avenue without a problem,” said  Trooper Phil Pushard, who is part of the state police commercial vehicle unit. “It had gone under other overpasses” but hit the Union Street bridge.
