Traffic on Interstate 10 is finally flowing again, but drivers should be cautious after a wreck involving three 18-wheelers and a separate incident involving a crane collapsing on the roadway.
Truck pile up
Biloxi police Sgt. Jackie Rhodes said that three 18-wheelers collided on the eastbound lanes on 1-10 near the Tchoutacabouffa River bridge, which is near the Cedar Lake exit.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation said one of the 18-wheelers was leaking fuel. A Hazmat team went to the scene about 9:30 a.m. to clear the roadway.
All lanes of traffic are now clear at that scene, MDOT said.
A crane completely blocked westbound I-10 just before the Mississippi 605/Cowan-Lorraine exit on the Biloxi River bridge, the Mississippi Department of Transportation reported at 7:37 a.m.
It took about four hours to get the crane fully removed from the roadway.
Gulfport police Sgt. said at 12:08 p.m. that both westbound lanes were open to drivers.
Popps Ferry Road was clogged with motorists Wednesday morning as traffic was being diverted from I-10.
