UPPER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- A large tractor-trailer caused major delays on Monday morning after it got stuck under an overpass on the FDR Drive.
Officials say the unauthorized vehicle got stuck at around 2:30 a.m. Monday, heading south near 90th Street.
Citizen App video shows cars being allowed to pass the tractor-trailer. Debris was littered all around the tractor-trailer in the overpass.
All southbound lanes were closed for many hours as crews worked to clean up debris and get the vehicle unstuck.
Officials offloaded the vehicle, pulled it out from the overpass, and cleaned up the debris before traffic resumed as normal.
Commuters can use the Major Deegan Expressway or the West Side Highway as alternate routes to avoid any residual delays.
NewsCopter 7 was over the scene as crews worked to get barrels off the tractor-trailer at around 6:45 a.m.
All traffic on the FDR Drive was diverted off at 96th Street.
