All lanes of Interstate 35 are back open Thursday after a "major spill" from a garbage truck shut down both northbound and southbound lanes of the highway in Georgetown.
According to Georgetown police, the garbage truck spilled at the 265 exit of I-35 near the interchange with Texas 130 Expressway shortly before 1 p.m.
Police said a tow truck, which was carrying the trash truck, was traveling northbound when the driver, somehow, crossed all lanes of traffic and crashed into a concrete divider. All traffic traveling southbound stopped as a result.
No one was injured.
Police said southbound IH-35 would remain closed for several hours while crews clean up the debris.
