A section of the M2 has been reopened after fears of the safety of a bridge - but delays are continuing.
The motorway was shut between J5 and J6 of the coast-bound carriageway for Sittingbourne and Faversham at about 2pm.
Kent Police said an expansion gap on the Stockbury Viaduct, which crosses the A249, sparked concerns.
But it was reopened about an hour later after a structural engineer said there was "no risk to the integrity of the road".
However, commuters were warned that congestion could stretch into the rush-hour.
