(FOX19) -

Traffic is flowing again on northbound I-71 after some type of equipment reportedly fell onto the highway Tuesday evening.

Officials say a large piece of equipment was on the roadway, just before of the Ridge South exit. It happened around 7 p.m.

A FOX19 viewer said it appeared as if the equipment fell off of a semi-truck.

At one point, the two right lanes were closed to traffic. All lanes have since been reopened.
