Update: The semi accident that happened earlier this afternoon has been cleaned up and all lanes of I-270 have reopened. Praise the rush hour gods.


7/17/2017 2:45pm: An accident this afternoon has caused I-270 to close in both directions on the south side of Columbus.

A semi truck hit a power line and an overpass. The driver was taken to the hospital in stable condition. Interstate 270 will remain closed indefinitely while the Lockbourne Rd Overpass on I-270 (between Alum Creek and US-23) is inspected and the fallen power lines are repaired. I-270 will most likely be closed between I-71 and U.S. 33 in both directions during rush hour tonight.
