The semi-truck overturned on the #1 and #2 northbound and southbound lanes on the bridge. CHP authorities said "high-profile vehicles" should avoid the area due to high winds.

Caltrans officials specified all lanes on the bridge are blocked and those using the bridge should expect delays.

Those who are able should seek alternative routes and also avoid the area.
