Roads reopened before rush hour
Northbound Pembina Highway has reopened after being closed at University Crescent Tuesday afternoon, when a semi-trailer truck dropped a load of concrete blocks on the highway, Winnipeg police say.
Police said the semi was carrying concrete blocks, weighing more than 450 kilograms each, some of which fell onto the road shortly after 1 p.m. CT.
Several lanes of Pembina were closed but reopened by 3 p.m.
No one was hurt, but police say cranes were needed to pick the blocks up.
The cause of the accident has not been released.
