A truck carrying a load of gravel rolled over on the DVP on Tuesday, possibly trapping the driver, and forcing a major traffic detour, according to Toronto police.

Debris from the vehicle and the gravel has spilled into the south-bound lanes. 

As a result, both north-bound and south-bound lanes are closed between Don Mills and Eglinton for cleanup and emergency response. 

Police are telling drivers to avoid the area if possible.

The DVP just re-opened to traffic on Monday at 5 a.m. after being closed all weekend for fall maintenance. 

Drivers used Don Mills Road, Bayview Avenue, Victoria Park Avenue and Kingston Road as alternative routes during the closure.
