URBANA - Illinois State Police say all lanes are now open after a truck-tractor semi-trailer roll over crash on Interstate 74 this morning.

Authorities say the crash happened at about 5:33 a.m. near mile post 186.  ISP Troopers say the truck-tractor semi-trailer was hauling 156 hogs at the time of this incident.

The livestock was safely removed from the vehicle before removal efforts began, with Troopers performing a rolling roadblock in order to allow the safe removal of the truck-tractor.

The roadblock resulted in the partial closure of I-74 in both directions at various times, will all lanes reopening shortly after 10:00 a.m.
