FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — All southbound lanes of I-95 were closed for nearly four hours near Eastover for a wreck involving a tractor-trailer carrying hogs, the N.C. Department of Transportation said Monday.

The closure happened because of a crash around 1:45 p.m. near the I-295 and US 13 interchange.

NCDOT officials earlier estimated the section of highway would reopen by 7 p.m. However, the highway reopened around 5:35 p.m.

Despite reopening, about four miles of traffic congestion remained in the area, the NCDOT said.
