Transportation officials are notifying the public that an 18-wheeler traveling eastbound at IH-10 the East Freeway onto the US-59 northbound exit ramp has overturned and is blocking the ramp.

Diesel fuel and the big rigís load of tile must be offloaded before the 18-wheeler can be uprighted. The estimated clearance time may extend into the rush period, so the traveling public is encouraged to consider an alternate route or alter their departure time.
