A crash stopped traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway in Montgomery County Tuesday morning causing hourslong delays.

The multi-vehicle wreck in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 76 near Belmont Avenue caused traffic to back up past the Conshohocken Curve to the Blue Route (Interstate 476) around 9 a.m.

There were no reports of injuries.

Avoid getting onto I-76 east if you can as traffic delays ballooned to over 3 hours at one point and were still far above 2 hours more than two hours later, according to Waze.

Traffic appeared to slowly start to get by around 10:20 a.m., but more than hourlong long delays remained.

NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Sheila Watko listed Route 30, Ridge Pike/Ridge Avenue and Conshohocken State Road as alternate routes.

Waze reported the roadway being mostly clear as of 1:30 p.m.
