CLEVELAND — A portion of Interstate 480 was reopened both east and westbound following a crash just before the I-71 interchange, not far from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Few details regarding what happened are known at this time, but the Ohio Department of Transportation says the incident occurred in the eastbound lanes. I-480 was shut down beginning at the I-71 ramp, while westbound traffic was halted at State Route 237 south due to debris on the road.

The highway opened again after about an hour.
