An accident prompted the closure of I-77 northbound before downtown Tuesday.

Police were forcing traffic off of the highway at East 30th Street during the morning commute, but the road has since been reopened.

A box truck and six cars were involved in the collision.  Two people were taken to the hospital.

Traffic was backed all the way to I-480 and alternate routes such as the Jennings Freeway were congested as well.
