A 41 tonne crane which closed the A7 after leaving the road and becoming trapped in the road barrier has been recovered and the road is now open.
Traffic is being controlled by traffic lights and kept to single file. The road will close again at 3pm today for around two hours while temporary safety barriers are put in place.
The incident happened on the A7 just south of Skippers Bridge, Langholm.
