Semi-rollover backs up traffic on I-94
Two lanes are closed on I-94 south near Howard Avenue this evening after a semi-truck accident. The truck, carrying 78,000 pounds of grain, rolled over around 2:45 this afternoon and knocked over a light pole. At one point, two lanes were closed in each direction of I-94 while officials worked on the scene. Traffic backups on I-94 have stretched several miles north of downtown Milwaukee at times. All northbound lanes have reopened but officials expect two southbound lanes to remain closed through the evening rush hour.
