UPDATE: MoDOT says the jacknifed semi at the 57.8 mile marker is no longer slowing down traffic.
Traffic is shut down on I-44 at the 57.8 mile marker because of a jackknifed tractor trailer.
It’s blocking both lanes of traffic past the Avilla exit.
Traffic is being diverted at the 57 exit to Highway 96.
UPDATE as of 8 a.m.: All WB I-44 Lanes are OPEN to traffic.
