Traffic on I-55 back to normal in Scott County

BENTON, MO (KFVS) -

Traffic on Interstate 55 in Scott County is back to normal.  For much of the morning, northbound traffic was down to one lane after a semi truck overturned.

Troopers tell Heartland News that around 1:45 Friday morning the driver of the tractor trailer swerved to avoid a deer. The rig flipped spilling spools of tubing on the interstate.  The driver was not hurt.

The northbound lanes were shut down for a couple of hours as crews cleaned up the scene.  

Around 4 a.m., troopers opened one lane to traffic.  

Around 7:30 Friday morning, traffic was back to normal.
