WASHINGTON (AP) — District of Columbia Transportation officials say ramps to Interstate 66 from E Street in Washington have reopened and have been deemed safe.

The entrance and exit ramps to I-66 were closed for a time early Tuesday after debris was found under an overpass. Police said construction to a ramp may have caused concrete debris to fall.

The District of Columbia Department of Transportation says engineers were sent to the interstate ramps early Tuesday to investigate.

Transportation Department spokesman Reggie Sanders says the ramps were closed as a precaution because debris found under a bridge from an earlier construction project was thought to have come from under the E Street ramp.
