A stretch of Hwy 401 through Milton has been re-opened ahead of schedule.

Westbound lanes of the highway were closed at Hwy 25 Thursday morning after a tractor trailer burst into flames.

OPP expected the closure to stretch into the afternoon rush to accommodate resurfacing of the highway.  But the damage turned out not to be as bad as first thought.

Sergeant Kerry Schmidt says the fixups will be done in stages overnight,  though it is not clear when exactly.
