DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A portion of the busy High Five interchange in Dallas was shut down on Wednesday night after a big rig flipped and dumped its concrete load onto the roadway. This happened at about 7:15 p.m. along the ramp connecting the westbound LBJ Freeway to the northbound lanes of North Central Expressway.

Officials have not said what may have caused the vehicle to crash, but the driver was not seriously injured.

Crews worked through the night to clean up more than 150,000 pounds of cement and fix damage that was done to the roadway and the nearby concrete barriers along the ramp. Heavy equipment had to be brought in to first break down the larger pieces of steel-reinforced cement so that they could then be hauled away.

Some lanes have since opened, but this incident is expected to have a significant impact on Dallas traffic throughout much of Thursday. Check our traffic section for the latest updates and to find an alternate route through the area.
