HOLYOKE — A rollover crash involving a dump truck has shut down the northbound exit of I-91 today.

The truck rolled over, shutting down Exit 16 and the northbound lane around 4 p.m.

The truck was carrying asphalt and paving materials.

As of 7 p.m., state police said the highway was still closed around and traffic was being diverted off at Exit 16 to re-enter after Exit 17. People trying to avoid 91 north have jammed Route 5 in Holyoke. At 5 p.m., Route 5 was bumper to bumper from the last city exit all the way to Kmart Plaza.

There is no time estimate as to when the highway may be open again.
