The westbound lanes of Highway 54 near Eagle Road in Wisconsin Rapids are now reopened after a trailer hauling 6,000-7,000 lbs of cranberries cracked spilling a portion of the load onto the highway.

It's happened around 8:30 am. The lanes were closed around 10 am to speed up clean up. The road reopened just before noon.

Right now it's not clear what caused the trailer to split. Police say the semi-driver notice the spill.
