PEAK-HOUR traffic is at a standstill in Footscray after a truck hit a bridge on Napier Street.
The rail bridge is hit almost 10 times a year.
All inbound lanes are closed and VicRoads has urged motorists to avoid the area.
One lane was opened to let some cars through but has been closed again to allow recovery vehicles access to remove the truck.
Napier St is not expected to reopen until at least lunchtime.
The incident is not affecting trains.
In March a shipping container fell on a car when the truck carrying it misjudged the bridge height.
The container slid off the truck and landed on a car carrying three men who suffered minor injuries.
