All lanes of westbound Interstate 80 were blocked for more than 30 minutes Thursday morning at the causeway due to a collision involving at least three vehicles, one of which overturned, according to California Highway Patrol and Caltrans.

An overturned van was reported about 7:45 a.m. on the causeway, midway between Davis and West Sacramento on I-80, according to CHP’s incident log. All lanes were closed, then reopened at about 8:22 a.m., according to CHP.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but details regarding injuries were not available.

Traffic was still heavily congested along westbound I-80 east of the causeway about 8:30 a.m., as the closure significantly backed up traffic during peak commute hours.
