COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The U.S. Department of Transportation said $1 million in emergency relief funds will go toward repairing a damaged central Ohio interstate bridge that was charred after a tanker truck carrying ethanol caught fire.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced the emergency funds in a statement July 8. The money will be available immediately and will replace the deck of the bridge on Interstate 70, west of Columbus.

The tanker overturned near a ramp between Interstates 270 and 70 on the west side of the city, burning beneath an I-70 bridge that carries traffic toward downtown.

Officials said repairs are expected to be completed within 30 days.

Meanwhile, westbound lanes of I-70 have been repurposed to carry eastbound traffic past the damaged area in narrow lanes.
