A dump truck rollover sprayed debris across the westbound lanes of the Julia Tuttle Causeway (Interstate 195) Tuesday afternoon, closing the busy thoroughfare for hours and clogging traffic.
By about 5 p.m. traffic was once again moving — although slowly.
“There was a big mess to clean up,” said Joe Sanchez, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.
The truck rolled from the eastbound side to the westbound lanes at about 2 p.m., police said. The truck driver was injured but it was not clear how badly. No one else was hurt.
Never miss a local story.
While crews cleaned up the mess, Miami Beach Police were advising alternate routes including the Venetian Causeway and the MacArthur Causeway.
