Tanker stuck on I-20 bridge over Augusta Canal

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - UPDATE: The tanker has been moved and traffic is flowing freely.

A tanker truck stopped on the I-20 bridge crossing the Augusta canal has traffic backed up for miles into South Carolina.

The tanker can be seen from GA DOT's traffic camera at the state line. The tanker does not appear to have been involved in a crash but is simply stopped at the canal bridge.

Waze users are reporting being stuck in the traffic jam as far back as the Five Notch Road exit on the South Carolina side of I-20.
