For a while it looked like it had catastrophe written all over it, but it just ended up as a short inconvenience for some drivers.

Police closed part of U.S. Hwy. 51/I-39 this afternoon after a crane used for some construction started to lean. That prompted fears it could topple over.

The southbound lanes of U.S. Hwy. 51 were closed for a short time right during rush hour.

Construction crews were able to move the crane and re-open the roadway.
