PORTLAND, Ore. — A semi trailer rolled on an Interstate 5 on-ramp early Wednesday morning, spilling a load of shredded paper across the roadway.

The Oregon Dept. of Transportation closed the Columbia Boulevard on-ramp to I-5 southbound while crews work to clear the paper and tipped trailer.

ODOT hopes to have one lane of the on-ramp back open by 6 a.m.

No word on what caused the crash.
