North Augusta Road Closed

At approximately 7:07 this morning, a loaded trailer separated from it’s tractor unit while coming off the 401 at North Augusta Rd.  As a result, both the north bound and south bound lanes of North Augusta Rd at Waverly Dr. are blocked.  City police are on scene and City Works crews have placed barricades in the area while the tractor and trailer are removed.  It is anticipated that North Augusta Rd will be closed at that location for several hours due to the heavy weight of the trailer and the need for specialized equipment to remove it.
