Multiple westbound lanes were closed Tuesday morning after a crash on U.S. 290 West at Texas 71, also known as the “Y” in Oak Hill.

Texas Department of Transportation officials were warning drivers of the incident in Southwest Austin after confirming it around 9:30 a.m.

TxDOT’s online traffic map indicated that as many as three lanes were blocked by dirt and rocks after a truck tipped over.

As of 10:15 a.m., traffic delays were reported from the “Y” to as far east as Monterey Oaks Boulevard, just west of MoPac Boulevard (Loop 1).
