All lanes on the portion of the outer loop of Interstate 695 in Anne Arundel County, which were closed Tuesday afternoon when a tractor-trailer flipped onto its side, have been reopened, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration.
Highway officials announced the reopening in a tweet around 5:20 p.m.
The crash happened at Exit 7A, by Maryland Interstate 295. All lanes were closed, the agency said.
Officials announced the incident around 1:30 p.m.
Shortly after the accident, several people rushed to move traffic cones to help block traffic as inner-loop drivers crawled past on the other side.
It’s unclear how the tractor-trailer ended up on its side atop the bridge above southbound I-295.
