LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nearly all lanes of the northbound 605 Freeway in Southern California are closed after a big rig overturned spilling 42,000 pounds of honey.

California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball says four of the five lanes have been closed after a big rig turned over at about 2 p.m. just north of the eastbound 60 Freeway near Avocado Heights.

Caltrans workers are on scene helping to clear the mess as well as a tow-truck to help upright the tractor.

Transition roads onto the northbound 605 Freeway from the eastbound and westbound 60 Freeway are also closed.

Kimball says it's unclear how long it will take to clean up the area.
