Crews completely closed the bridge Thursday night because of debris in the roadway. Crews worked throughout the night to remove the large rocks and dirt.

Traffic is moving well on TJ Meenach Drive. Thanks @SpokaneCity crews for working hard overnight to get it reopened. In some parts, rocks covered big stretches of road. @kxly4news pic.twitter.com/cBvwN5f4t8
