INDEPENDENCE, Ohio– A portion of Interstate 77 south was closed Friday morning because of a crash.

The left two lanes of the highway at Interstate 480 were reopened just before 8 a.m.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said motorists exiting downtown via I-77 southbound may have an easier time using I-490 west to SR 176 south to I-480 east to access I-77.

Traffic reporter Patty Harken said the accident involves six vehicles.
