TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The northbound lanes of I-75 to I-475 have been re-opened after a runaway roll of steel closed them temporarily.

I-75 southbound to I-475 westbound, and I-75 northbound to I-475, were closed Friday evening while crews attempt to clean up the roll of steel that fell from a semi truck.

No predictions as to how long the road will be closed.

According to Toledo Police, the steel fell from a semi truck and unrolled several hundred feet, partially blocking some of the traffic lanes.

This section of roadway is already narrow due to construction.
