Update: Traffic in both directions is now moving again after a semi caught fire on Interstate 80.
LECLAIRE, Iowa -- A semi on fire prompted crews to block of a portion of Interstate 80 to drivers heading in both directions. This closure included the I-80 river bridge.
A crash happened around 1 p.m., Tuesday, July 16. The Iowa Department of Transportation said traffic between the Middle Road exit and US 67 exit was at a standstill afterward; that's Exit 301 and Exit 306, respectively.
Westbound traffic was shut down for a while after the crash, but has since reopened.
Around 1:50 p.m. the I-80 river bridge reopened to traffic. Eastbound traffic is still being detoured off at an exit just before the crash site.
