CENTRAL TEXAS — A multiple-vehicle crash on southbound I-35 near Waco Drive/US 84 and Bellmead Drive is causing significant traffic delays, said the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

Traffic is backed up almost 4 miles to Crest Drive north of Waco, and northbound traffic is also slow in the area. Traffic delays are currently estimated at 15 minutes.

Emergency responders are working to clear the area, which is expected to take at least an hour.

TxDOT advises drivers to use the alternate route, and take exit 339 to Loop 340 and avoid I-35 at this time.

Alternative Route Instructions:
1. Exit 339 to Loop 340
2. Turn left and drive 11.5 miles to I-35
3. Take right cloverleaf turn to on-ramp
