Cocke County, Tennessee (WVLT) One lane of Interstate 40 Westbound is now open near the North Carolina-Tennessee state line (milemarker 445).

The other lane remains closed due to a tractor trailer rollover accident.

It may be early afternoon before the other lane opens.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the truck was carrying sheetrock.
No word on any injuries.

THP says both eastbound lanes are open in the area.

However, you may experience delays if you are heading that way.
