Part of Highway 40 in Montreal's West Island reopened after truck hits sign
A section of Highway 40 has reopened after a truck hit an overhead sign near the Morgan Boulevard exit, in Montreal's West Island.
According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), a truck with a hydraulic lift hit the structure late Thursday night, forcing the closure of the eastbound lanes between Anciens Combattants Boulevard and Morgan Boulevard.
