Thruway lanes in Albany reopened after crash

Authorities say the northbound lanes of the Thruway near Albany are open again after being shut down

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.
