    All westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were blocked late Thursday due to an overturned big-rig, according to the CHP.

    The incident was first reported at 8:24 p.m. on Interstate 80, just west of Treasure Island. The big-rig landed on its side and no other vehicles were involved, according to the CHP. Fire officials said heavy winds may have caused the big-rig to tip over.

    Lanes started to reopen just after 9:40 p.m.

    No other information was immediately available.
