All lanes of northbound I-5 have since been cleared and have reopened to traffic.
KERN COUNTY, Calif. -- Northbound Interstate 5 near the Grapevine experienced major backup following a big rig crash Wednesday afternoon.
The California Highway Patrol says the big rig was carrying 15-foot metal poles when it lost its load, spreading across all lanes.
Officers say the far two right lanes, starting south of Grapevine Road, were closed as crews worked to clean up the debris.
Caltrans cameras near the scene of the crash showed traffic at a near standstill for several hours.
All lanes have since been cleared and have reopened to traffic.
