UPDATE: As crews continue working on repairing a hole in the bed of Interstate 10, traffic has backed up 4 miles on the Bayway westbound and 2 1/2 mile backup on the causeway heading toward the eastern shore. Expect traffic delays if the Wallace Tunnel is part of your daily commute.

UPDATE: The bridge repair will take days to fix. Crews hope to have it open by Sunday.

An 18-wheeler carrying steel coil has overturned just outside the West Bound Wallace tunnel.

Cheyenne West with the Alabama Department of Transportation tells News 5 that the bridge deck has sustained some damage but the extent is unknown.

One west bound lane should reopen after the accident is cleared but bridge deck repairs will have to be made.  It is not know how long those repairs may take.

West bound traffic is being routed to the causeway which is experiencing significant delays as well.
