Overturned Truck Shuts Down 1-20/59 East Headed Toward Tuscaloosa
An overturned tractor trailer has snarled traffic on Interstate 20/59 East for hours Saturday afternoon, according to Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa's traffic reporter "Cap" Ray Allen.
The 18-wheeler flipped over on the Interstate in Greene County near Exit 52, Allen said, and all eastbound lanes of the highway have been closed in the hours since.
There is no word on when the eastbound lanes will reopen, and drivers are being advised to take US Highway 11 to avoid getting stuck in the snarled interstate traffic.
The increased traffic on 11 is creating delays there, too, according to ALGO's Traffic Twitter.
Drivers using either route should exercise caution and expect delays.
