An overturned semi hauling cattle has shut down a portion of a major interstate while officials attempt to wrangle escaped cows.
Update - 5:30 pm.
The Nebraska State Patrol opened the northbound lanes on the JFK just before 5:30. Southbound lanes reopened at 4 pm but then closed when more cattle were located. They reopened at 5 pm.
Omaha Police believe that all of the cattle that escaped from an overturned livestock truck on northbound JFK and Q Street have been rounded up.
There were up to two-dozen cattle still inside the trailer and they are currently being transferred to another. Once the transfer is complete a head count will be done to make sure all are accounted for.
Southbound JFK at Q Street re-opened at 3:00 this afternoon. Northbound lanes remain closed. Traffic is being rerouted. The semi overturned around 10:30 this morning. Cattle wranglers on horseback came to the scene to help round up the cows
