All lanes of southbound U.S. Highway 101 have reopened in San Mateo this morning after a big-rig overturned, spilling its contents, as it came off a connector ramp from state Highway 92, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The truck overturned at about 5:30 a.m. and spilled a load of scrap metal, which blocked the connector ramp and two right lanes of Highway 101, CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett said.

No one was injured in the crash, Bartlett said.

The connector ramp remains closed and there is no estimate yet for when it will reopen. A Sig-alert issued at 5:54 a.m. remains in effect.
