A lorry overturned on the M6 in high winds crossing the Thelwall Viaduct.
Drivers were hit by delays of more than an hour and a half according to Highways England.
All lanes have now reopened between junctions 20 and 21 on Tuesday (June 6).
The accident was just north of where it meets the M56 at J19.
A fuel spillage onto the carriageway after the crash at about 10am has also been cleaned up.
Initially the M6 had been closed entirely, but the inside lane was opened allowing some traffic to flow through.
The northbound tailback stretched back more than five miles to Knutsford.
