TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - As of 3:30 p.m., all lanes of traffic have reopened at Hwy 31 W at Loop 323, according to Tyler Police Department.


Drivers are advised to avoid the area of WNW Loop 323 near State Highway 31 as emergency responders work to clear the area after a one-vehicle crash.

According to a report by Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Andy Erbaugh, at 12:40 p.m., officers responded to that area after a semi-truck overturned on the roadway while attempting to turn north onto Loop 323 from Highway 31. The driver is unharmed.

“As of 1:21 p.m. all northbound traffic on Loop 323 just north of Highway 31 is closed. Traffic is being diverted by officers in the roadway. A wrecker has arrived, but it will take some time for the trailer to be righted and the vehicle towed. At that time, northbound traffic on Loop 323 will re-open,” Erbaugh said. “Please avoid this area if possible.”
