One Lane Closed on I-95 Northbound in Augusta

Augusta – A tractor trailer carrying US mail has overturned at mile 114 northbound on I-95. One lane of travel is currently open. Motorists should expect delays.

Crews at the scene continue to wait for another federal truck to arrive so the off-loading of the cargo can begin. Once the load is transferred, the overturned truck will be set upright. During that process, State Police will close both lanes of travel northbound until the truck can be safely towed away.

The detour will direct traffic to Exit 113 onto Route 104 then back to I-95 at Exit 120.

While the closure isn’t expected to last long, motorists are advised of long delays.
