Wind turbine accident closes Aurora underpass  

Credit:  By NBC Nebraska | Sep 12, 2017 | www.nbcneb.com ~~

The Highway 14 underpass in Aurora is closed because of an accident involving a wind turbine.

Department of Roads officials say a semi-truck hauling parts for a wind turbine attempted to drive through the underpass late Monday night. The turbine parts bent metal beams on the railroad bridge.

Crews from the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe railroad will be repairing the underpass, which could take a couple of days.

Trains can still use tracks on the south half of the bridge, but highway traffic is being re-routed through Aurora.
