All westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the Blue Ridge Cutoff have reopened after a crash caused traffic to back up to Noland Road.
The crash, which occurred about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, closed westbound I-70 for a short time.
Several lanes of the highway, however, remained closed and traffic was squeezing past the wreckage only on the shoulder.
The highway reopened about 12:15 p.m.
As crews worked to clear the wreckage, eastbound I-70 traffic was backing up near the crash as drivers passed the emergency crews.
