Tractor-trailer tips on Skyway, all lanes blocked – Hamilton Spectator

The Burlington Skyway is closed, after a tractor trailer tipped on its side during Wednesday’s high winds.

Emergency crews were called to the bridge just after noon Wednesday, after Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says wind toppled the empty transport truck on the bridge. No injuries have been reported.

Both sides of the bridge were shut down, between Eastport Drive and Northshore Boulevard, around 12:30 p.m.

Hamilton is under a high-wind warning this afternoon, with gusts of up to 100 km/h.

Police say they have received reports of downed trees and poles across the city.

They caution drivers to be cognizant of items such as garbage or recycling bins that could blow into the roadways.
