Congestion is steadily easing on the M56 this Friday rush hour (April 7).
The outside lane had been blocked eastbound near junction 14 at Hapsford after a crash at about 4pm, but all lanes were reopened at 5pm.
A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said they had received reports four cars were involved.
Drivers have faced an extra hour added to their journey because of the traffic.
Queues heading east stretched back beyond J15, which is the exchange with the M53, to where the M56 becomes the A494.
A tweet from North West Motorway Police suggested there had only been 'minor injuries' as a result of the accident.
