CLAYSVILLE (KDKA) – The eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 in Washington County are closed due to an overturned tractor-trailer.
According to emergency dispatchers, the crash happened at mile marker 1 around 4 a.m.
All eastbound lanes were blocked from the West Virginia line through Claysville and traffic is being diverted at Elm Grove.
As of 8 a.m., the road was still closed, but crews opened one lane to allow the backed up traffic to get by.
Good news! Traffic is no longer backed up on 70 east between W. Alexander and Claysville. Crews opened one lane to let traffic pass the semi that overturned. 70 east is still shut down though so you’ll have to take the 40 east detour. @kdka #kdka pic.twitter.com/8g6IC06gz7
