SPRINGFIELD - Authorities reopened a portion of I-12 East Wednesday afternoon that had been shut down after a wreck involving multiple trucks many hours earlier.

DOTD said traffic was backed up for nine miles from the site of the wreck between Holden and Albany. 

Authorities said two dump trucks and an 18-wheeler were involved in the wreck Tuesday night that initially closed the interstate. One lane was reopened around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Drivers who wish to avoid the congestion should use U. S. 190 as an alternate route. Live updates can be found on the WBRZ Traffic Center page.
