The Trans-Canada Highway is fully reopened after a crash earlier Monday (Aug. 15) afternoon, but drivers are warned to expect delays.
Emcon Services Inc.’s South Island Division posted an update to Twitter at 3:32 p.m. advising that the northbound lane was reopened. The lane was closed following a northbound crash that happened around 1 p.m. involving a commercial truck and trailer that went into the ditch between West Shore Parkway and Finlayson Arm Road.
The closure was in place from about 1:45 until 3:30 p.m. as Emcon recovered the vehicle.
