Overturned semi blocks I-15 ramp for hours

A semitrailer on its side blocked an Interstate 15 on-ramp Tuesday morning for almost four hours in North Las Vegas.

The semitrailer, which was transporting plywood, overturned about 5:45 a.m. on the ramp from Cheyenne Avenue to southbound I-15, Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Chelsea Stuenkel said.

The ramp reopened just after 9:30 a.m. after the plywood was cleaned up. No one was injured, Stuenkel said.
