ODOT’s highway cameras captured multiple fire and medical teams responding to a situation on the highway stretch near U.S. Route 23. The agency listed the reason for the shutdown as a crash, and asked drivers to avoid the area.

The westbound lanes reopened around 11:20, with cameras showing traffic flowing freely again. However, emergency crews remained at the scene with lights flashing on the shoulder of the road. As of noon, they had left the area and traffic flowed normally again.
