Traffic is flowing again in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 near Chatham.

The road had been closed since before 8am when a transport truck flipped and burst into flames, just east of Dillon Line in Chatham-Kent.

The driver of the truck was taken to hospital with only minor injuries.

OPP opened one lane around 11am so traffic could get by, but then closed it a short time later.

Officials say the road needs to be repaved due to the damage caused by the crash and will remain closed until at least 5pm.
