PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Northbound Interstate 17 has reopened after crews worked to upright a crane that tipped over near Bumble Bee on Monday morning.
The crane tipped at milepost 247 when crews retracted its braces to move it while working on a maintenance and paving project about 2 a.m., said Raul Garcia of the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Only one lane was blocked, Garcia said.
DPS and the Arizona Department of Transportation said all northbound lanes of I-17 were closed for about 20 minutes north of Black Canyon City so the crane could be tipped back.
No one was injured in the incident, Garcia said.
