State Police say there are minimal traffic delays at this time, but there is potential damage.
State highway personnel are assessing damage to the Tip O’Neill tunnel after a truck struck the tunnel’s ceiling. The truck, which was being carried on a flatbed by a tractor, hit the ceiling of the tunnel on Route 93 southbound at 9:40 a.m. and has caused “potential damage to wires and light fixtures,” according to a Massachusetts State Police alert.

Traffic is backed up to the Zakim Bridge, and all lanes have reopened, the alert says.
