The closure of the M2 - coincided with roadworks on the A2 - is sparking big hold-ups for disgruntled motorists.
Drivers have been stuck for more than three hours as they approach the Brenley Corner junction from Canterbury on the A2, and from the Thanet Way.
The closure has turned Brenley Corner into a "car park", as well as sparking delays on the A251 at Faversham.
Motorists trying to avoid the A2 standstill have been taking to Staple Street and Graveney Road, however, that route is now snarled up.
The M2 closure has come at the same time traffic lights are in force on the A2.
Highways England says it has raised concerns with Kent County Council over the phasing of the temporary traffic lights, and hopes the issue will be resolved.
The planned closure of the M2 is the first of three full weekend closures for surfacing works.
It will remain in place throughout this weekend until 5am on Monday.
The traffic chaos has caused Stagecoach to cancel all bus services heading into Faversham.
