Update posted at 9:04 a.m.:
Greendale Police say they have plenty of help, but the cleanup of a semi crash on Interstate 275's ramp from U.S. 50 will take a while longer.
A semi overturned on the ramp at about 4:30 a.m., coming to a rest leaning against the dividing wall between outbound and inbound traffic.
Two fire departments, a towing company, Aurora Fire Rehab Unit, Dearborn County Jail Road Crew, and Greendale Police are all assisting in unloading the glass bottles the semi was hauling in its trailer.
Greendale Police said outbound traffic on U.S. 50 getting onto I-275 either direction was shut down at 9:00 a.m.
Crews estimate another two hours before the roadways are completely open.
