A crash involving a big rig temporarily closed the connecting ramp between southbound Interstate Highway 280 and northbound state Highway 85 on the border of Sunnyvale and Cupertino early this morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported 3:22 a.m. and a sig-alert was issued at 3:41 a.m. advising motorists that the ramp between the two highways was entirely blocked.

The double-trailer truck was carrying 80,000 pounds of dry cement, and spilled about 10 gallons of diesel fuel onto the ramp during the crash.

The ramp was re-opened earlier this morning.
