The tractor trailer was located west of Treasure Island in the #5 lane.

While there was less traffic on westbound I-80 due to the closure of a stretch of the highway in Crockett due to the NuStar refinery fire, the closure had an impact on the evening commute.
The lane was reopened sometime Tuesday evening.
