PORTAGE — The right lane of westbound Interstate 94 was temporarily closed just west of the Ind. 249 interchange after a semitrailer veered off the road and into a ditch, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Crews were on the scene working to remove the truck around 11 a.m. Wednesday, INDOT said.

As of Wednesday evening all lanes were reopened in the area of the wreck.
