The road was closed in both directions from Main Street South and Nepewassi Lake Road in Markstay to Highway 535 in Hagar, a 10-kilometre stretch, until just before 1 p.m.

Two passenger vehicles were involved in a collision shortly before 7:30 a.m., OPP acting Sgt. Rob Lewis told CTV News in an email.

No one was injured in the crash.

"Members of the OPP traffic incident management enforcement team (T.I.M.E.) attended and are assisted in the investigation, which is still ongoing," Lewis said.

The roadway was closed for more than four hours.
