One Lane Reopens on I-82 Near Selah

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash. - Traffic is flowing again on one eastbound lane of I-82 near Selah. Drivers should still expect delays through the area, though.

Traffic had been backed up nearly 6 miles on I-82 where the freeway was completely closed because of an accident.

The semi-truck ran off the road about 4:00 a.m. Monday morning. It wasn't until about 6:00 that crews closed the road to begin clean up.

There is a small diesel spill that the Department of Ecology is evaluating and cranes have been brought in to tow the semi-truck trailer out of a ditch.
