Westbound traffic was backed up on the Westmoreland Bridge after a dump truck lost its load about noon Tuesday. Department of Transportation officials are cleaning the mess up.

Traffic appears to be back to normal after a dump truck headed toward West Ashley lost its load on the Westmoreland Bridge. The incident happened about noon and two lanes of the bridge were closed to traffic as S.C. Department of Transportation officials cleaned up the mess, Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Authorities have not been able to confirm the mess has been cleared but traffic cameras show traffic moving at a regular pace.
