AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police shut down all lanes of northbound Interstate 35 at William Cannon Drive after a semi truck’s load slipped, causing it to block the roadway.

The truck was carrying a concrete barrier and blocked two lanes of traffic headed northbound around 10:40 a.m. As of 11 a.m., officials had completely shut down the road and had traffic exit onto the frontage road so they could get the semi back on its way. At 1:39 p.m. the road re-opened.

Police officers were in the area to direct traffic.
