Overturned Tractor Trailer Snarls Mercer County, NJ Traffic All Day Thursday
An overturned tractor-trailer with a debris spill is causing hefty delays throughout Mercer County's highways at this hour (June 2).
All lanes are closed on I-195 eastbound just past Exit 3 (Hamilton Square-Yardville Road) in Hamilton Township, as of 1:30 pm. The accident was first reported mid-morning Thursday.
Traffic is still being diverted off at Exit 3 for Hamilton Square-Yardville Road, as of 1:30 pm on Thursday.
It is unclear if the roadway will open before the afternoon rush hour. Officials are still on the scene for the cleanup and repairs. We're told the tractor-trailer was carrying some type of metal.
Delays at one point of the morning rush were reported back well before Exit 5 (Route 130) in the area. Plus, earlier rubbernecking delays were reported on the westbound side of the roadway of I-195 during the morning rush. They were reported as far back as the New Jersey Turnpike (Exit 6), but have eased following the morning rush.
