Highway 427 to close for ‘several hours’ after truck covers lanes with gravel
TORONTO – Highway 427 northbound near Highway 401 could be closed for several hours Friday after a full dump truck rolled over, spilling debris across the highway.
The accident happened at approximately 1 p.m. in the northbound express lanes of Highway 427.
Ministry of Transportation crews are bringing “sweepers” to the area to clean up the debris – mostly gravel and oil.
The Highway 427 southbound ramp and the Highway 401 eastbound ramp to Eglinton Avenue are both closed as a result of the accident.
The accident could further delay cottage-goers hoping to make their way north on the first long weekend of the summer.
