An injury accident on the southbound Interstate 5 Bridge snarled traffic for about a half hour Friday morning.

The accident was reported about 10:45 a.m. Police and firefighters were dispatched.

A motorcycle was reported to be down in the traffic lanes at the north end of the bridge. Just before 11 a.m., the Oregon Department of Transportation reported that two lanes of I-5 southbound had closed because of the wreck. All lanes reopened within a half hour.

Webcams showed traffic slowing and backing up.

No further information was immediately available.
