The eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 have reopened in Maple Grove after a semitrailer truck rolled over Thursday morning at the I-494/694 interchange.
Traffic was diverted south on I-494 for about five hours, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
A truck carrying about 40,000 pounds of fruit tipped over around 4 a.m., according to a dispatcher at the Regional Transportation Management Center in Roseville.
The crash caused a big backup, with traffic near a standstill starting at Weaver Lake Road.
MnDOT said the freeway reopened just before 9 a.m. when crews finished cleaning up the mess.
The truck driver did not appear to be injured, the dispatcher said.
