The large vehicle hauling gravel was traveling on I-95 northbound past Fredericksburg when it overturned at the ramp for Exit 143/VA-610 Garrisonville at about 7:20 a.m. Monday, according to the WTOP Traffic Center.
Delays began building quickly and stretched back to the Centreport Parkway.
The vehicle was removed from the roadway with the help of a large crane, by 8:45 a.m., but spilled gravel from the vehicle blocked some I-95 northbound lanes for another hour.
All lanes were open to traffic by 9:54 a.m., but delays remain extensive.
