An overturned semi backed up traffic for some distance this morning on eastbound I-70.

The incident occurred around 9:30am three miles east of Altamont.  The rig's trailer overturned on both eastbound lanes while the cab of the rig stayed upright on its wheels.

Eastbound traffic was not stopped, but slowed significantly as motorists were going around the rig to the south onto the shoulder to continue on their way.  No one was injured in the incident.  Both eastbound lanes were back open around 10:45am.
