PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A semi-truck crashed on its side and leaked liquid onto northbound Interstate 405 on Thursday morning.

Portland police said a semi-truck rolled over on I-405 near Southwest 6th Avenue under an overpass. The truck spilled liquid that police said is not believed to be hazardous.

No injuries have been reported.

Two northbound lanes were closed while emergency crews responded. The Oregon Department of Transportation reported that Interstate 5 in both directions cannot access I-405 north. 

The cleanup process was expected to last into the evening commute. 

Drivers were advised to take alternate routes and heavy expect delays.
