I40 Closed at Airport Blvd. (OT)

Just a heads up for anyone planning on traveling towards the airport this afternoon:

Quote:
Both eastbound and westbound lanes of Interstate 40 are shut down near Airport Boulevard, and Airport Boulevard is closed in both directions after a tractor-trailer accident involving five other vehicles.

Traffic is backed up for miles as crews work to clear the scene of the accident, and authorities are advising motorists to avoid the area, if possible. There is no word yet as to when the interstate will reopen to traffic.

Looking at the traffic camera, you can see the cars pinned underneath....

I hope those involved are okay.

Ouch, I'll probably have to make a lot of trips around Durham for my new job in the next couple of months. I forgot how bad I-40 gets K, I'm just now realizing this involved an accident....I hope all is well there.

That was really a rough day. I work off Airport Blvd...went to Chik Fil'A off Lumley for lunch...and it took me an hour to get back. Once Airport Blvd and 40 closed...54 backed up within a half hour. It made 540 an even rougher drive in the afternoon.
