ST. GEORGE — The west roundabout at the Bloomington exit of Interstate 15 was partially blocked Saturday morning by a semitractor-trailer that rolled onto its side.
The semi was reportedly carrying over 77,000 pounds of food in the trailer.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area. The westbound route onto Brigham Road/Pioneer Road is completely blocked. Westbound traffic on Brigham Road is being diverted to I-15 or back onto eastbound Brigham Road.
UPDATE Sept. 18 3:40 p.m. Due to having to remove the cargo from the overturned trailer, righting and removing the trailer took longer than expected. The roundabout was reported clear at 3:40 p.m. and traffic is moving normally.
