A gravel spill closed several lanes on southbound Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland Tuesday morning.

At about 10:15 a.m., a truck with an open top spilled gravel on the three left lanes of the highway just north of the Broadway exit, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

Big-rigs were allowed to use Interstate Highway 580 while the lanes were closed for the cleanup, according to the CHP.

At 11:18 a.m., the No. 3 and 4 lanes reopened, but traffic was backed up miles.

The CHP reopened all lanes just before noon.
