BURNSVILLE (WCCO) — A garbage truck rollover on southbound Interstate 35W near the Minnesota River is blocking traffic, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation officials.

The rollover, which occurred at approximately 2:40 p.m. near Blackdog Road in Burnsville, is blocking three lanes of traffic of the southbound roadway. Traffic is moving on the shoulder only.

Emergency vehicles on the scene are also blocking two lanes of traffic on the northbound lanes, MnDOT said.

The Minnesota State Patrol says that the driver somehow lost control, causing the truck to tip over.

Crews are working to clear the site, which is expected to take several hours.

MnDOT recommends that motorists use other routes until the site is cleared.
