The interstate reopened around 1 p.m.

It’s unknown what caused the crash at around 8:15 a.m. The northbound lanes were shut down between Route 581 and Exit 43 for the state Capitol and Second Street.

A PennDOT spokeswoman said one the tractor-trailers overturned. The truck was hauling concrete dust which slowed the clean-up.

Only minor injuries were reported.

One lane of I-83 South was closed for about an hour.
