NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - All lanes have been reopened following a crash in the eastbound lanes of the interstate over the Bonnet Carre Spillway.

Eastbound lanes on the interstate in the Bonnet Carre Spillway area were closed due to an accident involving an 18-wheeler and a dump truck.

The 18-wheeler was carrying fish and the crash caused the fish to spill out on to the roadway. This has caused both lanes to be shut down so that crews can clear the roadway early Friday morning.

The accident happened at mile post 214.

Both lanes were reopened just after 9 a.m.
