ROTHSCHILD, WI (WSAU) -  The Wausau area’s afternoon rush hour traffic came to a sudden halt for about ten minutes Wednesday on I-39 and Highway 51.

A cable snapped on a construction crane working on the bridges over Business 51 and the Wisconsin River. Police shut down both roads for about 10 minutes until road crews could clear the debris.

There were no injuries, and no reports of damage.
