Crash closes lanes on I-91 in Middletown

Posted: Updated:

A crash closed two lanes on Interstate 91 north in Middletown on Tuesday morning.

The crash, which was reported between exits 18 and 20, blocked the right lanes and has traffic backed up to Interstate 691.

Connecticut Department of Transportation officials said the crash should be cleared in less than an hour, but are asking motorists to seek another route because of the traffic backup.

No other information was released.
