The westbound portion of Route 2A remains closed after a construction crane overturned on Route 2A west, directly behind Fort Shantok Road in Montville.

Mohegan Sun Boulevard has reopened. Exiting casino patrons are being diverted onto Route 32, which connects with Interstate 395. Route 2A could reopen after 8 p.m. as crews work to remove the overturned crane.
