CLEVELAND -- A tree that fell onto MLK Boulevard in Cleveland created a major traffic backup for those traveling westbound on I-90 Friday morning.

The MLK exit remained open but traffic was being detoured shortly off of it.

Fox 8 Traffic Reporter Patty Harken said if you don't take an alternate route, expect long delays.

Traffic on I-90 eastbound was also impacted.

The tree had been in the road since 5:45 a.m. Friday.
