The crash was reported at about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday, and the lane was closed with traffic tie-ups in the area for several hours, DOT said.
Only minor injuries were reported in the one-car crash, state police said. DOT and the Danbury Fire Department were on the scene.
All lanes had reopened by late Wednesday morning, and the crash scene was cleared by a wrecker.
