A jackknifed semi blocked all eastboound lanes of Interstate 70 near the Indianapolis International Airport Thursday morning, June 23, 2022.

The semi got sideways at approximately 6:30 a.m. on the Interstate 70 collector ramp east of Reagan Parkway, so traffic leaving the airport or coming toward I-465 on I-70 from Plainfield was funneled down to one lane.

The semi was moved by 8:30 a.m. and traffic was back to normal flow.
