11 tonne piece of machinery blocks highway
A piece of heavy equipment was the cause of backups on the QE2 Tuesday morning.
Right around 7:00, Leduc RCMP were called to the scene just south of Glen Park Road, where an 11-ton piece of industrial equipment had fallen off a trailer.
That resulted in the left-hand lane being closed to southbound traffic for roughly an hour, while crews towed the equipment off of the road.
The RCMP say the equipment still needs to be removed from the highway later in the day, which will happen when recovery crews are able bring in the needed equipment.
