All lanes of the Long Island Expressway are now open after an overturned dumptruck filled with dirt caused complete eastbound closures Monday.

The area was closed as crews cleaned the roadway, which police said could take an extended amount of time.
The driver of the truck was not hurt.
As of 11 a.m., there were wajor delays in both directions of the LIE between Post Road in Westbury and South Oyster Bay Road in Syosset, according to the Patch live traffic map.
Police reported all lanes had reopened at 1 p.m.
