There is a traffic alert you need to know about if you travel on the Thruway.

Crews are making what they call emergency bridge repairs to the Wheatland Center Road bridge over I-90. We're told the affected side is the westbound side. A representative from the Thruway Authority tells us they believe a truck that was too tall for the bridge, went underneath and hit it. We're told crews were out welding cracks in the bridge where the damage happened.

Officials say there is no danger of the bridge falling down.
