Traffic was tied up on the exit ramp at U.S. 54 and 50 at the tri-level during much of the lunch time rush hour Wednesday. The hauler was unable to successfully negotiate the turn onto U.S. 50 eastbound.

A truck with an oversized load got stuck under the tri-level in Jefferson City Wednesday afternoon, causing a traffic jam.

Authorities said the load, part of large wind turbine, got stuck around 1 p.m. They had no information as to where the load came from or where it was going to.

The traffic problem was exacerbated when another accident occurred on the bottom level of the tri-level, on eastbound U.S. 50. Authorities said this was a minor accident involving two vehicles and no injuries were reported.
