State police have reopened I-84 eastbound and the left and center lanes of the westbound after a jackknife tractor trailer caused a headache for drivers.

The crash happened near Exit 28 and required the Department of Environmental Protection to be called to the scene.

A contractor is being brought in to help assist with the fuel cleanup.
