UPDATE: Highway has been cleared and is now back open to traffic.
A truck has dropped its oversized load while attempting to enter the highway, completely blocking Highway 32 East at the intersection with East 28th Street, shutting off the road until crews can get it clear.
Anyone needing to travel in or out of Hope on 32 E will need to detour until it is cleared. Hempstead County Road 52 in Shover Springs can get traffic frrom Hwy 32 to Hwy 278 or Hempstead County Road 56 can be taken to cut through to Patmos Rd or East 28th.
We will update when the roadway is clear.
