Rock Creek Parkway reopens after falling debris

All travel lanes of Rock Creek Parkway in the District of Columbia have reopened after chunks of concrete fell from an overpass.

Around 1 a.m. Tuesday, U.S. Park Police say they found that debris had fallen from the Pennsylvania Avenue overpass onto the southbound lanes of Rock Creek Parkway between P and M streets.

During rush hour, police say traffic on the parkway was reduced to two lanes before Pennsylvania Avenue instead of four inbound lanes, and that drivers were diverted into northbound lanes until after M Street.

There were no reports of cars being hit by the falling debris.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
