All lanes of Highway 417 eastbound have reopened just east of the Nicholas/Lees exit after a transport truck crash spilled fuel onto the roadway.
The crash happened at about 5:20 a.m. when a transport truck slammed into a light rail construction barrier, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Fuel was spilled onto the road and hydro lines were damaged. The fire department handled fuel cleanup efforts.
Initially, all eastbound traffic was being diverted off the highway and onto the Nicholas/Lees off-ramp.
