All lanes of westbound Interstate 80 were reported open in the Blue Canyon area as of 4 p.m. following a Friday afternoon closure due to a jackknifed big rig.

The California Department of Transportation reported that traffic was flowing smoothly and the traffic backup caused by the closure was diminishing.

The crash closed all westbound lanes about 2 p.m. Caltrans reported rain and fog in the area at the time.
