Northbound I-87 lanes reopen at Albany after crash

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say the northbound lanes of the
Thruway near Albany are open again after being shut down for nearly an
hour by a two-vehicle crash in a construction zone.

Troopers say the accident occurred just before 10
a.m. Thursday on Interstate 87 between exits 23 and 24 on Albany's
western outskirts.

Police say one vehicle has overturned. Troopers say
the other vehicle involved is a tractor-trailer. There are no reports
of injuries.

The Thruway Authority says the northbound lanes were reopened around 10:45 a.m.

The crash occurred near the major interchange at Exit 24 that links the Thruway to the Adirondack Northway.

During the lane closures, northbound traffic was diverted off the Thruway at Exit 23 on Albany's southern end.
