Gatineau's boulevard Maisonneuve has now reopened after an overpass structure above the road was struck forcing the road to close for several hours.

The City of Gatineau confirmed that part of the building straddling the six-lane arterial road was likely hit by a vehicle.

Due to the absence of traffic cameras in the area, officials could not provide further details, nor say what kind of vehicle caused the damage.

Boulevard Maisonneuve connects Gatineau to Ottawa via the Portage Bridge.
