Kennewick — A truck loaded with scrap metal overturned in the eastbound lanes of the Highway 240 roundabout after failing to negotiate the roundabout just before 5 p.m. today.
The truck spilled its a pile of metal and diesel fuel onto the highway, said Trooper Chris Thorson of the Washington State Patrol.
Though work is still being done to clean up the wreck, traffic was moving without backups through the area shortly after 7 p.m.
Traffic headed east on Highway 240 can't continue through the roundabout to Columbia Drive.
Traffic headed south from the blue bridge into Kennewick on Highway 395 can't exit onto Columbia Drive but can exit onto Highway 240.
Traffic headed west on Columbia Drive onto Highway 240 can continue through the roundabouts.
The state Department of Transportation expects to reopen all lanes abut 9:30 p.m.
Some traffic is being routed to Clearwater Avenue around the wreck, said Thorson.
Two people were in the truck and they werent injured, Thorson said.
