Southbound Highway 65 is closed to the westbound Interstate 80 connector after a big-rig rollover at 1:55 a.m., according to the Department of Transportation

The rig, hauling Save Mart groceries, has spilled about 40 gallons of fuel on the ground, according to DOT. Another big rig is on scene offloading cargo, and a HazMat team has arrived to contain and clean up the site along with other safety personnel. One the cargo is offloaded, crews will upright the big rig and drain the fuel.

Traffic detours are in place and the highway is expected to open back up at 9:30 a.m., according to DOT.
