An overturned truck closed all eastbound lanes of Jericho Turnpike for about an hour Friday morning, not far from the ongoing PGA Northern Trust at Glen Oaks Club golf tournament, officials said.

The state Department of Transportation’s informny.com website reported the closure at 6:42 a.m. at Woods Road, on the border of Old Westbury and Westbury.

Old Westbury police estimated the road would be reopened by about 8 a.m., but could provide no other details.
