One Lane Re-Opens On I-70

The Ohio Department of Transportation said a portion of westbound Interstate 70 in Guernsey County was closed early this morning…but as of 7:30 am one westbound lane has been re-opened.  The accident happened between State Route 83 in New Concord (mile marker 169) and U.S. 40 in Norwich.  Diesel fuel was spilled as a result of the accident, but most of it has been cleaned up.  Traffic is moving slow through the area since only one lane of the interstate is open.
