I-5 Northbound near Terwilliger: Overturned Semi Blocks Two Lanes

PORTLAND, Ore. — A semi overturned in the right lane of Interstate 5 Northbound in the Terwillier Curves near Southwest Brier Place around 3:30 on Thursday morning.

The semi was carrying dog food, which spilled onto the freeway.  It also leaked oil.

The center and right lanes are blocked for the morning commute.  ODOT will close the freeway entirely at 10:00am to get the semi upright, remove its load and tow it away.

Drivers should expect delays all morning or plan an alternate route such as Barbur Boulevard/99-W.

A truck flipped onto its side and has closed the two right lanes of NB I-5 at SW Brier Place. We will close all NB lanes after 10 am to complete the cleanup and remove the truck and its load of dog food. #pdxtraffic pic.twitter.com/Z0rBzmrTTc
