The RCMP were called to investigate a single-vehicle rollover on the Sherwood Park Freeway east of Edmonton late Tuesday afternoon.
Police said a collision analyst was called to help with the investigation and that as a result, traffic would be blocked at the scene for “several hours.”
“One westbound lane of travel is blocked between the Anthony Henday (Drive) and 17 Street,” the RCMP said in a news release issued shortly after 5 p.m. “The access ramp to 17 Street is not accessible.
“Traffic is becoming backed up and it is suggested that commuters take a different route, if able.”
At 9:15 p.m., the RCMP provided an update and said all lanes and access ramps had been reopened.
Police declined to say if there were any injuries but said they expect to release more details on Wednesday.
