One lane on northbound Interstate 5 between Peltier and Twin Cities roads will be closed until about 2 p.m. Tuesday due to a big rig carrying glass rolling over on the right shoulder, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Both lanes were closed for about an hour, but the left lane was re-opened at about 1:15 p.m., according to CHP spokesman Michael Bradley.
Traffic is being diverted to Highway 99 at Peltier Road.
The driver, whose name was not disclosed, was carrying 46,000 pounds of glass from a plant in the Fresno County community of Kerman when he lost control of the truck and rolled off the road, Bradley said.
The glass was top-heavy, and the right-front tire went off the side of the road, Bradley said. There was no shoulder because crews were repaving the area, he added.
The right lane continues to be closed until a dump truck picks up shards of broken glass in the right lane, Bradley.
The rollover took place at 11:53 a.m., and traffic was backed up to Peltier Road. There were no injuries, Bradley said.
