Traffic on Route 28 northbound was backed up Monday afternoon due to a tractor-trailer accident at the Highland Park Bridge in O'Hara.

An Allegheny County 911 dispatcher said a truck lost a load of steel coils on a ramp connecting the bridge to Route 28. He had no further information.

According to a post from Allegheny County's Twitter account at 4:30 p.m., the truck spilled 2 tons of steel, forcing the closure of the ramp. No one was injured, according to the county's social media post.

Television news footage of the incident about 4:45 p.m. showed backups on Route 28, the bridge and Route 8 on the Pittsburgh side of the bridge.

State police troopers were on scene; it was not clear how soon the crash would be cleared.
