An overhead highway sign has collapsed in the westbound lanes of Hwy 401 at Brock Street, closing the highway in both directions.

Officers from OPP’s Whitby detachment believe there was a collision that caused the sign to collapse at 7:46 a.m. and are investigating. Clean-up and removal of the sign is expected to take some time and police are telling commuters to expect “major delays.”

Motorists are being advised to take an alternate route.
