PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- There was a major backup on the Ben Franklin Bridge Thursday morning after steel beams were dropped on the roadway.

The debris at the base of the bridge caused a traffic jam on the westbound side of the bridge.

Crews worked to remove the debris with a tow truck as police blocked lanes.

All westbound lanes were reopened around 8:30 a.m.

At the same time, a disabled bus was blocking two lanes on the eastbound side. It was removed around 9:45 a.m.
