A semi-trailer rollover blocked traffic on southbound I-15 at Point of the Mountain Monday morning.

The rollover accident, which occurred around 8 a.m. near mile marker 285, was caused by high wind conditions.

Traffic was diverted to the right shoulder of the freeway to allow drivers to go around the accident scene. The Utah Department of Transportation reported the left lane had reopened at about 9:35 a.m. and all lanes had reopened by 9:50 a.m.

Drivers are urged to seek alternate routes and avoid the area if possible.
