PORTLAND -- All westbound lanes of Interstate 84 were closed early Thursday morning after a semi-truck jackknifed just east of I-205.

The closure was reported just after 6:30 a.m. At 8:40 a.m., one lane was reopened, and just after 9 a.m., all of the lanes were back open.

A tow truck removed the semi-truck and the empty trailer, said Don Hamilton of the Oregon Department of Transportation.
