The North Carolina Department of Transportation is reporting several lanes closed on Interstate 40 after an accident near Black Mountain on Wednesday.

NCDOT said both lanes of traffic near Exit 59 are closed after a tractor-trailer overturned about 1:45 p.m. They said the right westbound lane and the left eastbound lane are closed near the Patton Cove Road exit.

They suggest taking Exit 65 to US-70 west and then turning left on Porters Cove Road. They said to then take the ramp on the right to get back onto I-40 .

The closure is expected to end at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, according to NCDOT.
