bee truck overturned on highway 85

Several lanes of I-85 North are closed after a trailer carrying bees just crashed near the Mecklenburg-Gaston County boarder. Three lanes are now blocked, causing traffic to be backed up over a mile.

Multiple NCDOT incident management units and a beekeeper were called to the scene.

Drivers heading into Gaston County should take an alternative route this evening.

The lanes aren’t expected to open until 7:15 p.m.
