Overturned tractor trailer slows rush-hour traffic on I-293


October 05. 2017 1:12AM




MANCHESTER — Traffic on the northbound side of Interstate 293 through Manchester slowed to a crawl through the evening rush hour Wednesday due to an overturned tractor trailer.

The state Department of Transportation said the driver of a truck lost control while crossing the Granite Street bridge.

Once it overturned, the truck blocked lanes on the northbound side; Exit 5 on that side of the highway was closed for several hours.

The accident occurred after 3 p.m. and the right lane and on-ramp were both closed around 4:30 p.m.

There was a long backup through the rush hour even though traffic was still getting through, officials said.

State Police are investigating the crash.
