Truck Overturns, Temporarily Closing I-40 at Rock Bard Rd. [UPDATED 11/06 04:10 p.m.]

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol reports that Interstate-40 eastbound at the Rock Barn Road exit (mile-marker 133) has been shut down. The closure is the result of an overturned tractor-trailer blocking the roadway. As of approximately 11:40 a.m. today (November 6), a detour was being set up. Motorists are urged to avoid the area. No further details are currently available.

[NOTE: Just after 3:30 this afternoon, the Highway Patrol issued a release stating that I-40 had re-opened. No additional details were released.]
