WSDOT closed the pedestrian / bike lanes to make room to get the truck upright and clear the scene.

The lanes were reopened after two hours.

UPDATE 2:51 p.m.: According to the State Patrol, they are still working to determine the cause. There is eight yards of concrete in the drum that did not spill. There was a small fuel spill that is being addressed. Driver has minor injuries.
