A collision on the offramp from northbound Interstate 5 to Highway 599 near Tukwila trapped motorists on the ramp and created quite the Friday morning traffic mess.
The collision occurred around 6 a.m. and blocked all lanes of travel, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Washington State Patrol and Incident Response Team crews directed drivers back up the ramp to get away from the obstruction and back onto the freeway. The right lane of travel on northbound I-5 at South 144th Street was closed to allow vehicles room to turn around.
According to a tweet from WSDOT, the collision on the offramp was cleared and the right lane on I-5 reopened just before 8 a.m.
