A traffic accident on Interstate 5 northbound at the foot of the Interstate 5 Bridge has been cleared, but the traffic snarl will persist well into rush hour.

The rollover accident occurred about 2:10 p.m. at the Jantzen Beach onramp.

It apparently involved a Jeep and a tractor-trailer rig. The wreck was in the right hand lanes at the northbound onramp.

Though some cars continued to get by on the left, traffic quickly backed up to the Marquam Bridge.
