The northbound lanes of the Ayalon Highway were reopened to traffic at noon Wednesday, Army Radio reported. However, the segment of the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Highway between Ganot Interchange and Kibbutz Galuyot Interchange was still closed. There were reports of heavy traffic in the area and drivers are requested to find alternative routs. The highway was closed northbound Thursday morning after a truck with an attached crane crashed into a digital signposting bridge near the Kibbutz Gluyot interchange. No one was in hurt in the accident, but police closed the highway out of fear that the bridge would collapse and engineers were working to dismantle the structure. Police detained the truck driver for questioning.
