UPDATE: Quadra Street is now open one lane in each direction while crews work to repair the hydro pole and power lines.

They are expected to be working for approximately 2-3 hours, and flaggers have been stationed to help traffic flow.

Earlier: A single-vehicle crash has closed Quadra Street in both directions between Tuxedo Drive and Ambassador Avenue.

The crash occurred at around 3:15 a.m. in the 4100-block of Quadra Street.
