DALLAS — Updated at 7:25 a.m. after roadway partially reopened.
Southbound Interstate 45 has reopened after it was shut down early Tuesday morning due to a crash, Texas Department of Transportation officials said.
An 18-wheeler jackknifed across multiple lanes sometime before 4 a.m. near Overton Road. It appeared it was a FedEx truck that had crashed.
All lanes, including the shoulders, were initially blocked due to the crash, TxDOT officials said. The roadway had reopened by 8:20 a.m.
Drivers have a couple options to avoid the area. They can take South Corinth Street or use Southbound I-35E as an alternative Tuesday.
