GALLERY: Nemo Road bridge collapse

UPDATE (11:30 a.m.): The road is closed at Norris Peak Road and Merritt Estes Road.

According to authorities on scene, the collapse is believed to be due to a semi going over the bridge, but they are unsure at this time if it was the bridge that gave out due to a structural issue or if the semi weighed too much.

The bridge was not currently under construction
