    A multi-vehicle crash closed the Roosevelt Boulevard (Route 1) in Philadelphia for more than 30 minutes Tuesday morning.

    The crash came just after 6 a.m. in the northbound lanes near Broad Street. Multiple cars crashed causing police to block all lanes.

    It took crews about 30 minutes to move the vehicles off to the shoulder. By 6:30 a.m., traffic began to get by the crash site again.

    The crash occurred on the same morning when crews began a repaving project in the inner lanes just above Broad Street.

    No injuries were reported.
