Interstate 70 in the northwest corner of the Kansas City’s downtown loop has reopened following a crash involving a tractor-trailer Tuesday.
Eastbound I-70 near Broadway was reopened about noon. All of the westbound lanes reopened about 8:30 a.m., according to Kansas City Scout.
The tractor-trailer tumbled over the guardrail onto eastbound I-70 about 6:30 a.m.
The truck was headed north on the ramp from Interstate 35 to eastbound I-70.
Debris from the crash was strewn across eastbound I-70. The westbound lanes were closed so emergency vehicles could reach the crash.
The driver of the semi was taken to a hospital. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
Motorists who typically use the Lewis and Clark Viaduct to and from Kansas City, Kan., were being urged to take Interstate 670.
