OHIO – The intersection of state Route 26 and Maytown Road was closed for about 2 hours Monday after a truck carrying a wind turbine blade got stuck.

The Lee County Sheriff's Department closed the roads around noon, and they were re-opened around 2 p.m.

The turbine blade was for the 212 megawatt Green River wind farm, which spans more than 13,000 acres in Lee and Whiteside counties.
