Interstate 20 reopened Thursday and westbound traffic is no longer being rerouted. 

Special equipment was brought in Wednesday to remove an overturned semi-truck and officials have cleaned up the hazardous cargo. Sulfuric acid was pumped out of the area and the road was reopened. 

Westbound I-20 was closed near mile marker 565. Traffic was diverted at U.S. Highway 271 to Loop 323 and back to U.S. Highway 69 and back to I-20.
