HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - All lanes of the H-1 Freeway are reopen after a semi truck lost its load of concrete blocks, snarling eastbound traffic during the morning commute Wednesday.

It happened around 6:35 a.m. prior to the H-1/H-2 merge.

Crews blocked multiple lanes in the area as they worked on cleaning up the debris, which caused a major gridlock for several hours.

All lanes were reopened by 8:30 a.m., but the state Department of Transportation said it would keep the zipper lane open to all drivers until traffic cleared.

No injuries were reported.
