An overturned UPS tractor-trailer on the Fort Duquesne Bridge snarled traffic to the Parkway East and led to lane closures for half the day Friday, state police said.

The tractor-trailer was traveling outbound on the bridge when it rolled onto its side before dawn as it approached the Reedsdale Street off-ramp near Heinz Field.

Boxes spilled out of the trailer and scattered across the upper and lower decks of the bridge.

Police reopened northbound lanes of the bridge by 11:40 a.m.

All of the southbound lanes reopened by 4:49 p.m., state police said.
