The lane of Interstate 71 southbound reopened Monday night after crashes involving more than 50 vehicles just south of State Route 61.
The highway patrol says I-71 will remain one lane between State Route 61 and U.S. Route 36 throughout the night.
Motorists are advised to use caution in the Delaware County area because semis involved in the crashes are in the roadway. Emergency crews plan to remove the semis during daylight hours starting at 9 a.m.
The highway patrol is investigating the crashes, which resulted in minor injuries and the hospitalization of one person.
I-71 southbound was closed for about seven hours. I-71 northbound remained open.
