MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - The westbound lanes of Interstate 24 are back open to traffic at 22 mile marker.

This is just east of the I-24 and Interstate 69 interchange.

I-24 westbound was closed to traffic for several hours after a semi crashed.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), a FedEx dual-trailer semi crashed and an early report shows one of the trailers has split in half.

The closure was to allow recovery crews to safely offload the trailer before its removal.

Westbound I-24 was detoured at the U.S. 62 Calvert City exit 27 and from this route back onto the I-24 at the U.S. 68 Reidland exit 16 interchange.

Eastbound I-24 traffic is not affected.
