The freeway cleanup of what were frozen chicken parts has entered day two along Interstate 30 in Fort Worth.

The 18-wheeler carrying the parts overturned early Tuesday morning and the cleanup has been ongoing since.

No main lanes are blocked, but the on-ramps from University Drive and Forest Park Drive were blocked.

Crews estimated the cleanup would be finished around 6 a.m., but that projection was missed.  Just after 9 a.m. Wednesday, officials said they hoped to have the crash cleared by 10:15 a.m.

The cleanup is considered a HazMat situation because of the materials being cleaned up.

The truck had been loaded with 40,000 pounds of frozen chicken parts before the crash.
