Westbound I-475 reopened at I-75 in central Toledo Friday evening after an afternoon crash in which a truck struck an overhead sign.
Cranes were dispatched to the scene just west of Auburn Avenue to remove the damaged sign, but this necessitated closing the freeway for more than three hours, until shortly before 7 p.m.
Streets in nearby neighborhoods were jammed for the evening rush hour by detouring traffic.
