The eastbound lanes of Hwy. 401 are closed between County Rd. 42 and Queens Line.

The OPP says a tractor trailer is in the ditch.

Officials are detouring traffic from the EB highway through Tilbury, but motorists can still expect major delays.

It’s unknown at this point when the highway will reopen.
