Although Washington State Patrol said all lanes of Interstate 5 southbound were blocked just south of the Gee Creek Rest Area due to a lumber spill, lanes were cleared by 12:30 p.m.

The traffic hazard was reported just before noon today.

A two-car collision was reported nearby, but it is unclear if the crash was associated to the spill, said Trooper Stephen Robley.
