****UPDATE: Traffic is backed up through the 15-501 exit, but crews have moved the wreck to the shoulder and all traffic lanes have reopened.****
Two of the three eastbound lanes of I-40 are closed Friday morning near NC 54 due to a wreck.
There is no word at this time regarding the severity of the wreck. North Carolina Department of Transportation officials first reported the wreck just before 9:15 Friday morning. DOT cameras show emergency crews on the scene.
Traffic is slowly able to get by in the right-hand lane of I-40.
Several accidents have been reported throughout the morning as commuters are navigating roadways in rainy conditions. Carrboro Police were on the scene of a wreck on NC 54 for approximately an hour Friday morning. That crash has since been cleared and traffic is moving normally.
There is no indication as to how long it will be before the lanes are reopened.
