Crews were busy Tuesday morning cleaning up lumber which spilled off a semi truck on Interstate 90.

Both directions of I-405 to westbound I-90 and the off-ramp to Bellevue Way from westbound I-90 were blocked for several hours because of an overturned semi.

The truck has now been righted, but crews were removing the wood debris from the roadway.

All drivers had to use the HOV bypass lane on the ramp to get to westbound I-90 lanes.
