Northbound lanes of I-35 in south Austin reopen after wreck early Friday

Traffic

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A wreck on Interstate 35 closed northbound lanes and caused heavy backups early Friday in south Austin.

The wreck happened near Slaughter Lane on the freeway, and all northbound lanes were closed for a portion of the early morning commute and traffic could only get by using the shoulder. Traffic has since started to move in the area as the crash cleared, but there were significant backups in the area throughout the rest of the morning.

TxDOT sent a tweet alerting people of the wreck just after 5:45 a.m. Friday.
