Motor vehicle and rail traffic was halted Monday night because of chunks of concrete falling from an overpass near a busy intersection in Larimer and North Point Breeze, emergency dispatchers were told.

The concrete fell about 10:15 p.m. from the overpass on Fifth Ave., near the intersection with Hamilton Ave., dispatchers were told.

Inspectors were summoned to examine the overpass before the area, near the Port Authority garage, can be reopened, dispatchers were told.

There were no reports that anyone was injured or that any vehicles were damaged by the falling concrete.
