OPP are projecting a noon-hour reopening of three westbound lanes along Highway 403 at Third Line following a Tuesday crash involving a tractor-trailer transporting chickens.
The vehicle rolled onto its side just after 5 a.m. on Tuesday leaving only the HOV lane accessible.
Investigators believe speed may have been a factor when the truck was “ramping on” from Third Line to the 403.
Heavy tow vehicles, fire units and OPP were still on scene as of 9 a.m. occupying several lanes as attempts are made to remove the truck.
Police say part of the delay is the transferring of chickens to new trucks that have arrived on scene.
