SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - UPDATE: Savannah Police say the Truman Parkway has fully reopened to all traffic on both north and southbound sides.


UPDATE: Southbound lanes have been reopened to traffic. Northbound lanes should follow later in the day.

Stay with WTOC for further updates.


A single-vehicle crash and fire involving a U-haul truck on Truman Parkway Friday morning has resulted in closures on the parkway that are expected to extend through the majority of the weekend.

According to Savannah Police, the morning crash resulted in damage to an overhead sign that has resulted in the extended closure. They say traffic engineers are on the scene assessing the damage and working toward repairs.

At this time, the closure has been extended to affect all northbound lanes of Truman Parkway between DeLesseps Avenue and DeRenne Avenue as well as southbound lanes between Victory Drive and DeRenne Avenue. Detour signs are in place in the area.

Savannah PD officials say the closures are expected to last through the majority of Saturday, but could possibly extend into Sunday. A update will be issued when the lanes have reopened.

No injuries were reported in the crash.

Until this route reopens, WTOC’s Cutter Martin recommends using HWY 204/Abercorn, heading north into Savannah as an alternate route.
