BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — An overpass partially melted by a tanker truck fire was demolished Saturday as crews worked overtime to reopen one of the nation's busiest highways.

Northbound lanes of I-95 might be reopened in three or four days, Department of Transportation spokesman Chris Cooper said Saturday. Officials were aiming to restore southbound traffic next weekend.

"Until traffic is moving in both lanes, it will be a 24-7 operation," Cooper said.
