A steel coil fell from a flatbed truck as it crossed from the Fort Pitt Bridge to the Fort Duquesne Bridge this morning.

The incident on the Portal Bridge shortly after 11 a.m. caused sporadic backups on the Parkway West and Fort Pitt Bridge. One lane of traffic was getting by.

Crews were working to clear the scene early this afternoon.
