The Highways Agency said all restrictions were lifted around an hour later.
However, it continued to cause delays for motorists - with congestion back to the Darenth Interchange and journeys still taking around 30 minutes by the evening rush-hour.
Meanwhile, Thames Road in Dartford was shut in both directions at about 5pm after a lorry overturned between Burnham Road and Crayford Way.
