I-580 lanes near Richmond-San Rafael bridge reopen after big-rig overturns


All lanes of eastbound Interstate Highway 580 toward the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge have reopened after a big-rig with an empty trailer overturned in heavy winds earlier Tuesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported shortly before 6 a.m. near the San Quentin on-ramp to the highway.

CHP officers closed all eastbound lanes heading toward the bridge as of around 7:50 a.m. to get the big-rig back upright and move it off the bridge. All lanes reopened by about 8:40 a.m., according to the CHP.

CHP officials are advising other big-rigs hauling empty trailers to avoid crossing the bridge until further notice.
