Northbound lanes on I-35 have opened back up. Police say it will still take awhile before traffic gets back to normal.

I-35 is still backed up both directions, to Loop 363 in Temple and all the way to Waco.

Alternate routes like U.S. 77 and Hwy 317 are also seeing very heavy traffic as people try to avoid the corridor.


(KCEN) -- All northbound and southbound lanes of I-35 were closed near Bruceville-Eddy early Friday morning.

Drivers were being diverted to the frontage road because of three accidents involving 18-wheelers.

Crews spent the entire morning working to clear the road of fracking material and non-hazardous material that could have destroyed the pavement.

Trooper DL Wilson says there are nine concrete barriers that needed to be replaced.

DPS estimated the accidents will be cleared around 10:00 a.m.
