From staff reports

An overturned semitrailer blocked two lanes of eastbound Interstate 90 near downtown Saturday morning. No injuries were reported.

The truck overturned at 4:30 a.m. near the Altamont exit and blocked the highway for hours. Traffic was still backed up throughout downtown and toward the airport as of 2 p.m., though all lanes were reported open shortly after.
