BLACK CANYON CITY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

It was a frustrating day for drivers headed north on I-17, as they faced more than an hour delay stuck in traffic.

At one point, just before 6 p.m., traffic was backed up for 8 miles, with a 75-minute delay.

The backup was due to a motorcycle crash blocking the left lane.

One lane was open and traffic was crawling along. 

At around 6:20, ADOT stated that all lanes were open, but that traffic was still slow.

ADOT said the traffic flow was finally back to normal in the area around 7 p.m.
