AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - The Richmond County Sheriff's Office responded to an overturned tractor trailer Monday afternoon.

According to the sheriff's office, the truck overturned on I-20 near mile marker 197, just east of the Walton Way ramp. The tractor-trailer was reported hauling gravel and spilled gravel, oil, and diesel fuel onto the highway.

As of the time of this article, only two eastbound lanes of I-20 are open and the Walton Way entrance ramp has been shut down. The sheriff's office says it will take an extensive amount of time to clean up. There is a possibility that all eastbound lanes of I-20 may have to be closed.

If you travel through the area, you may need to seek an alternate route.
