GOOCHLAND, Va. (WWBT) - Crews continue to remove a tractor-trailer that became stuck down an embankment along I-64 in Goochland County.

The truck became stuck near mile marker 151, near Old Fredericksburg Road, after Monday’s storm.

Crews working to remove the truck ran into problems on Thursday after it started falling apart.

A full eastbound closure was implemented around 3 p.m. to allow crews to pull the truck out safely. The road has since reopened, the truck was moved to the right shoulder of the road.

Work on removing the truck is expected to continue Friday. Drivers should use caution when driving through the area.

Drivers heading east on I-64 can use Route 250 as an alternate route to avoid delays.
