The roadway has been cleared for traffic.
Greater Sudbury Police are asking people to avoid the Lloyd Street hill for the time being, as a transport truck is being removed from the area.
A tweet from police just before 10 a.m. Wednesday didn't say why the truck needs to be removed, but trucks often have difficulty navigating the hill in inclement weather such as the winter storm hitting the city today.
Officers are on scene assisting with traffic control while the truck is removed. Both lanes heading toward The Kingsway are closed for the time being.
