Oversized Load Carrying $1 Million Yacht Briefly Restricts East Side Freeway

Posted: Updated:

Columbus police officers had to close the northbound lanes of Interstate 270 between East Main and East Broad streets on the city's east side to allow for an oversized load to turn around and exit at East Main Street Wednesday evening.

Officers say an oversized, million dollar yacht would not fit under an overpass and must be turned around.

Officers closed the northbound lanes for about a half hour at 5 p.m. while the yacht was driven south in the northbound lanes of I-270 before exiting on East Main Street.
