A too-tall big rig that struck an overpass near downtown caused a lunch-time traffic mess, closing all northbound lanes of I-45 while officials got it out of the way.

The 18-wheeler became stuck under the overpass for West Dallas at 11am. All northbound lanes of I-45 were shut down, as were connecting ramps, while officials backed the truck out of its position. The truck took an unusual trip in reverse all the way to the Highway 59 interchange.

All lanes were reopened at noon.
