Lost load backs up I-90


A truck lost a load of carpet and tile just west of the Maple Street exit Friday afternoon, blocking traffic in both the east and westbound lanes of Interstate 90.

The accident happened around 2 p.m. Friday, when a vehicle jack-knifed, and the trailer it was pulling lost its load, dumping the inside lanes of both eastbound and westbound I-90.

The freeway is partially blocked in both directions.

Detours are available around the scene using city streets.

The roadway was cleaned up and all lanes reopened around 3:15.
