Garbage Truck Fire Halts Traffic in KY


By Amy Stallings

Louisville (KY) – Traffic is backed up along Interstate 71 southbound after a garbage truck caught fire Friday morning.

The ramp to I-65 from I-71 south is closed, but the ramp to I-64 is open.

Crews are working to clear the scene.

UPDATE: Police have reopened Interstate-71 southbound lanes at Spaghetti Junction, but traffic continues to move very slowly on I-71 and westbound Interstate-64 because of a dump truck fire as of 7:30 a.m.

Long delays are expected for the morning commute into Louisville. The area is near Frankfort Avenue, a MetroSafe supervisor said.
