Southbound I-65 at the "Dolly Parton" bridge has reopened. It was closed for about an hour and a half Thursday because a 45-foot trailer hauling ATV's overturned.
Southbound I-65 is closed at the General W.K. Wilson Bridge, which is affectionately known as the "Dolly Parton" Bridge.
State Troopers tell News 5 a Chevy 3500 pick-up truck was pulling a 45-foot box trailer full of ATVs and electrical equipment. The trailer came loose and overturned.
Troopes say it appears there are no injuries. But the road is completely blocked. Traffic is being diverted at Exit 31 (Hwy 225) south to Spanish Fort.
