Traffic came to a halt on Interstate 84 Thursday afternoon after a tractor trailer nearly fell off the overpass. 

On Interstate 84 westbound just before the exit for the Taconic State Parkway, a tractor trailer dumped canned goods onto Route 52 below the overpass, leaving the roadways a mess.

The incident has left motorists either stuck or is forcing them to use alternate routes to reach their destination.

Emergency crews are working to clear the roadways, but currently traffic is backed up for miles.
