Montville — An overturned tractor-trailer forced the closure of one lane between exits 6 and 5 on Interstate 395 south Thursday morning, backing traffic up into Norwich.

The state Department of Transportation said the left lane is closed.

Oakdale firefighters said no one was injured in the 4:30 a.m. wreck. The truck was carrying spring water.

Google Maps estimated it was taking drivers 50 minutes to travel the six miles between exits 11 and 5.
