BURLINGTON, Ont. – All lanes have reopened on the Toronto-bound Burlington Skyway.

Police estimated the  bridge would be cleared on Monday, between 6 and 8 p.m. in the wake of a crash which took place on Thursday.

Crews worked all weekend to clear debris from the bridge and determine the extent of the damage.

A dump truck slammed into scaffolding on the bridge Thursday, bringing afternoon rush-hour traffic to a standstill and shutting down the north-bound lanes.

Police say, if found guilty, the cost of repairing the bridge will fall on the “liable party.” Initial estimates indicate the price tag could be in the millions.

The driver of the truck is charged with impaired driving and exceeding 80 milligrams of blood alcohol content in a motor vehicle.
