Monday evening a tractor-trailer crash occurred on Interstate 95, causing lengthy backups and lane closures until the early hours of this morning.
According to the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), the tractor-trailer flipped on Interstate 95 southbound and took the better part of 11 hours to clear. There were 4 vehicles involved and the exact location of the accident was I-95 south past Exit 64/695 Baltimore Beltway, mile marker 62.8.
The accident occurred before 5:30pm and the MDTA reported that initially all lanes were blocked. Drivers were directed to US 40 as an alternate route during the lengthy cleanup, which reportedly required hazmat response. While all northbound lanes remained open, southbound lanes were still closed after 10:30pm.
The Maryland Transportation Authority reported that all lanes had reopened on I-95 south as of 4:45am this morning, after nearly 12 hours of work clearing the scene.
