A truck carrying a load hit the Tranquille Road overpass that cross Fortune Drive on Wednesday morning, creating a mess on the road and among traffic in the busy thoroughfare.
The northbound truck’s load — large panels — struck the overpass and was sprayed across the two lanes of Fortune Drive entering North Kamloops.
The City of Kamloops initially closed the overpass to determine structural integrity, but it was reopened to traffic in short order.
As of 12:30 p.m., all southbound traffic on Fortune Drive was being rerouted to Leigh Road, over the overpass and over Overlanders Bridge. One lane was open northbound on Fortune Drive. There is no estimated time of reopening of all lanes.
