A lumber truck overturned on the Long Island Expressway Monday, dumping plywood across several lanes and causing extensive delays.
The tractor-trailer flipped around 2:30 p.m. in Old Westbury, according to officials. The spill caused the immediate closure of all the eastbound lanes near exit 40.
That was eventually lifted around 4:15 p.m., allowing cars to drive in the high-occupancy vehicle lane.
Three eastbound lanes are still closed.
