An overturned tanker trunk is causing major traffic delays on the express and local lanes of the I-95 outbound from the George Washington Bridge in Leonia, New Jersey.

Several westbound and southbound lanes of the turnpike are closed due to the accident.

Heavy delays stretch all the way back to the George Washington Bridge to Manhattan.

The Holland Tunnel is the best option at this time to leave the City into New Jersey.
