Both sides of Interstate 495 at the 12th Street bridge are closed due to a crash, the Delaware Department of Transportation said.

Delaware State Police are on scene, according to a tweet from the agency. State police provided no additional details.

DelDOT first tweeted at 9:47 a.m. that all north lanes of I-495 were closed due to the crash. Shortly thereafter, a tweet said one south lane was shut down too.

Then, both DelDOT and Delaware State Police tweeted that all lanes in both directions were shut down.

Traffic cameras show significant backup, and around 10:10 a.m., a tow truck could be seen driving toward where the crash occurred.

Neither DelDOT nor police have given an estimate as to when the highway will reopen.
