A collision in the northbound lanes of I-95 closed the right-hand lane and backed up traffic for miles around midday Monday, according to alerts from transportation officials.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation reported about 11:45 a.m. that the accident happened two miles north of the Georgia-South Carolina state line.

Waze driving app users reported near standstill traffic near the state line about 12:30 p.m.

The accident was cleared just after 1 p.m., but traffic was reported to be heavy even after that time.

Georgia 511, a Georgia Department of Transportation traffic tool, indicated that around 1:20 p.m., traffic was backed up across the state line and past the Jimmy Deloach Parkway exit in the Port Wentworth area.
