ERLANGER, Ky. (FOX19) - A stretch of Interstate 275 reopened Monday night hours after a semi overturned.

The incident happened at mile marker 184.3 on the I-275 collector ramp to I-71/75 southbound. The semi blocked all lanes eastbound and westbound shortly before 10:30 a.m.

Erlanger police confirmed the tanker was carrying gasoline. The driver was not hurt.

The gas was offloaded before the overturned truck could be moved, Erlanger Fire & EMS said on Twitter. The tank was not leaking.

KYTC officials initially said that process would take as 10-12 hours.

It appeared to take about that long. Erlanger Fire/EMS said around 9 p.m. the semi contents had been offloaded and the semi was being moved.

The interstate reopened shortly before 10 p.m., according to KYTC.
