Friday Morning Crash Closes I-77 South

Asheville - An overturned tractor-trailer has closed the southbound lanes of I-77 in Charlotte and could impact morning commutes.

Traffic flowing south is being detoured around downtown. Motorists should take Exit 11 to I-277, loop around the downtown area, then take exit 1-B to return to I-77 South and continue on their route.

Clean-up crews hope to have all lanes opened by noon. The tractor-trailer was carrying about 50,000 pounds of potatoes.
