MONTREAL— Transport Quebec has reopened two lanes on Highway 20 West after a transport truck hit an overpass late Wednesday evening.

The truck was carrying an oversized load, with a type wind-turbine tower when it struck an overpass near Saint-Mathieu, in Montérégie. Authorities closed the highway around 2 a.m. and reopened one lane four hours later at 6:05 a.m., Transport Quebec spokesperson Daniel Desormeaux said. He said two lanes will remain opened for most of the day.

The overpass is damaged and needs repairs but it is not at risk of collapsing, he said.
