Drivers were backed up for more than an hour due to a crash that shut down a portion of the Schuylkill Expressway in Montgomery County Tuesday morning.
At least one person was hurt in the wreck in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 76 between Gulph Mills and the Blue Route (Interstate 476).
The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. and initially some traffic got by, but Pennsylvania State Police then closed all lanes. Traffic remained backed up for miles well into the morning rush.
All lanes were reopened after 7 a.m.
Route 23, Ridge Pike and Germantown Pike can be used as alternate routes to get onto I-76 eastbound from the Blue Route.
Initially, there was also a lane closure westbound, but that was eventually cleared.
