LOS ANGELES (AP) - Twenty-one sticky tons kept many Southern Californians from shouting their usual "honey, I'm home" for hours.

Nearly all lanes of northbound Interstate 605 were closed during rush hour after a big-rig overturned spilling 42,000 pounds of honey.

California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball says four of five lanes were closed after the big-rig turned over at about 2 p.m. just north of State Route 60.

Highway workers, a tow truck crew and a hazardous materials crew helped to clear the mess, which also included diesel fuel.

The lanes were open again about three hours after the spill.
