UPDATE:
Dispatchers tell 13 News that all lanes are now re-open.


UPDATE:
The West Virginia Turnpike Authority says one lane of I-77 north is now open to traffic. The other lane is still closed as crews work to clean up a tractor trailer crash.


UPDATE:

Crews have been able to get the cab of the semi-truck upright. Crews are getting ready to move it, but the trailer is still overturned and crews have said it's going to take a while to right it.

The north lanes are still shut down. Debris is also scattered in the south lanes. Traffic is backed up for miles. Please avoid the area if possible.


ORIGINAL:

The West Virginia Division of Highways says Interstate 77 North is shut down. Both north lanes are blocked for tractor trailer that crashed on it's side.

It happened just after 8 p.m. at the 77.5 mile marker, which is near the foot of the hill at Paint Creek.

Expect major delays. There are no details about any injuries.
