It took most of the day to transfer the truck's payload – 48,000 pounds of food product that is used in waste water treatment – to another truck and to clear the wreck.
All lanes and the ramp re-opened just after 3 p.m., Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
The truck driver, Timothy Abernethy with Environmental Operation Solutions of Lexington, was taken to WakeMed with serious injuries, according to authorities. He was listed in good condition as of 9:15 a.m., according to hospital officials.
