A truck carrying scrap metal overturned at the Sullivan Square rotary in Charlestown Monday morning, snarling traffic in the area while crews worked to clean up the debris.

The most significant impact to morning traffic was seen on I-93 South, where the Sullivan Square exit ramp was causing the highway to back up much earlier than usual.

Other affected areas include the nearby Route 99 bridge and the Route 28 bridge leading to Wellington Circle.
