The much complained about eastbound stretch between junction 15 for the M53 and junction 12 for Runcorn is seeing traffic moving very slowly, but there have been no reported incidents.
Road users have taken to social media to vent their frustrations.
Highways England say motorists are currently experiencing delays of 30 minutes.
Normal traffic conditions are not expected to resume until between 3.30pm and 3.45pm.
