I-5 traffic slowed by crash, construction

 Posted: 4:15 PM May 09, 2014

A crash and construction have combined to clog traffic on Interstate 5 near Phoenix.

A crash at I-5's mile 26 is blocking the northbound fast lane, the Oregon Department of Transportation said in a traffic update shortly before 4 p.m.

Crews working at the crash, heavy Friday afternoon traffic and lane restrictions narrowing the freeway to one lane for construction near Phoenix, are causing delays. Traffic is backing up and motorists should avoid the area if possible, officials said.
