Update: Road open at MSP Airport after truck crash caused terrible traffic

Cars were at a near standstill Wednesday morning.

A truck crash at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has been cleared.

For hours Wednesday morning, most of the outbound road at Terminal 1 was blocked after a construction vehicle rolled over, causing terrible traffic for those coming to and leaving the airport.

The driver of the vehicle was alert and talking when he was brought to the hospital, but his condition is not known, airport spokesperson Melissa Scovronski told GoMN. The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. and was cleared just before 1 p.m.

For this morning's story, read below. 

A crash near the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is making traffic around the airport pretty terrible.

The airport tweeted just before 9 a.m. the "outbound roadway" at Terminal 1 (the Lindbergh Terminal) is down to one lane due to a crash. It's disruptive enough that the airport is encouraging people to park at Terminal 2 and ride the light rail over.

The airport said a truck rollover is to blame, noting it has blocked "several lanes" of traffic. One person at the airport tweeted the crash happened near the car rental entrance/exit ramp.

Police are working as fast as they can to clear the scene, but there's no ETA on when everything will be cleaned up and reopened, MSP said. By 10:38 a.m., the airport tweeted that a second lane has been reopened, but traffic is still "very congested."

We've reached out for more info, and will update this post when we hear back.
