NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Chickens from a flatbed truck were spilled on Interstate 40 in Nashville on Tuesday morning.

The cleanup has caused a slowdown in morning traffic in the westbound lanes along the south loop at the ramp to I-65 southbound.

The spilled chickens led to a ripple effect in traffic delays through I-40 westbound and I-24 westbound heading toward the downtown loop.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said the roadway should be cleared by 8:45 a.m.
