GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) State officials say work to repair an Interstate 15 overpass, damaged when it was struck by a backhoe being hauled on a flatbed trailer, has been completed ahead of schedule.

Jim Lynch, director of the Department of Transportation, said he was pleased with the speed of the repairs. Tamietti Construction of Great Falls had the $400,000 contract.

The 23-year-old driver of the flatbed truck was cited for exceeding the 14-ft. (4.2 m) height limit and failing to obtain a permit for a combination of vehicles exceeding the height limit.

Lynch said the driver, or his insurance company, will pay for the repairs.
