UPDATE @ 4:55: Both east and west bound lanes are back open.

UPDATE @ 4:40: The eastbound lanes are now all open. West bound traffic is still shut down at this time.

The westbound lanes of I-64 are closed at the MacCorkle Avenue exit in South Charleston. A cement truck has overturned between the Dunbar and Institute exits.

The eastbound lanes were down to just one lane from Institute to Dunbar, but are now back open.

Westbound traffic is being routed off the interstate at the MacCorkle Avenue exit on to Route 60.

Dispatchers say the west bound lanes are expected to be shut down for at least 2 hours.

The picture was just sent in via cell phone from our crew at the scene.
