Burlington Skyway crash: What you need to know

 

On Thursday, at 3:40 p.m. ET, a dump truck tried to travel over the bridge with its bucket raised. The bucket slammed into the bridge’s overhead steel trusses and girders, causing extensive damage.

What’s closed:

The Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) is closed between Eastport Drive and North Shore Boulevard. The lanes to Toronto are closed. The bridge now needs to be inspected by structural engineers, which is expected to happen Friday. The repairs, however, could take days.
