Both northbound lanes of Interstate 79 near the 139 mile marker were closed after a vehicle accident that happened around 3:30 p.m. Monday.
A tractor trailer hit a guardrail near the Prickett's Fort bridge and lost an axle while trying to avoid hitting another car, according to the Valley Fire Department.
One lane remains closed, as crews work to repair holes in the bridge from an unrelated incident.
The road was shut down for at least an hour.
