NEW YORK (PIX11) – The FDR Drive’s southbound lanes have since reopened after being shut down Monday morning when a truck struck an overpass.

Drivers were being diverted off FDR Drive to 96th Street. Debris was seen littering the roadway.

The southbound delays went back up towards the George Washington Bridge. Travelers were encouraged to avoid the area if possible.
