Posted June 3, 2008

— A multi-car accident on Aviation Parkway created a traffic mess Tuesday afternoon near Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Aviation Parkway was closed for about an hour near the intersection with Gateway Center Boulevard, south of Interstate 40. It reopened just after 6 p.m.

In Durham, a tractor-trailer accident on I-40 westbound blocked the right lane near the Old Erwin Road overpass just west of U.S. Highway 15-501.

Drivers were backed up through the 6 o'clock hour.
