I-71 north closed in Delaware County after semi overturns


DELAWARE CO., OH (WCMH)–The Ohio Department of Transportation says all lanes of I-71 northbound could be closed for several hours following a crash north of Delaware.

Some traffic is getting through on the shoulder. ODOT says the truck is carrying a load of steel tubing, and officials are trying to get the truck and its cargo off the road.

The crash is near mile marker 136, between the U.S. 36/37 exit and the State Route 61 exit. ODOT encourages motorists to exit on 36/37 and find alternate routes north.
