By the evening, normal traffic levels resumed, much to the relief of commuters and cheese enthusiasts alike.
Lightening the mood, the department asked, "Taco Tuesday, anyone?"
Incidentally, this wasn’t the only unusual case involving food on the highways this week. A day earlier, drivers on the opposite side of the country had their own bizarre encounter when a truck carrying chocolate caught fire on Interstate 80 in California.
