Bad start to a Monday

Posted: 2011/12/19 in accident, construction

The start of the work week did not get off to a good start, with this westbound overturned vehicle on the river bridge that happened first thing in the morning.  It shut down both westbound lanes for at least an hour so crews could clear it.

Here is some of the twitter feed that was going on first of the morning when it happened:

Speaking with the past weekend, another incident happened that didn’t help out with the delays with the construction traffic in the eastbound lanes.  This one happened Saturday afternoon just west of the Riverview exit and backed up traffic to 367 for at least two hours:
