A boat fell of a trailer on Interstate 35 in South Austin Thursday afternoon, backing up northbound traffic until the boat could be moved to the side.

It happened near Woodland, just north of Oltorf.

Interstate 35 was shut down while crews worked to move the boat off the road. Some motorists were stuck in traffic for up to 45 minutes.

No injuries were reported, and the lanes were open as of 1 p.m.
