CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Debris and a couple of traffic crashes are slowing the morning commute on the west side of Hamilton County Thursday morning.

Debris in the road briefly shut down northbound Interstate 275 between the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway and I-74 about 7:15 a.m., dispatchers said.

The highway was closed for about five minutes shortly after 7:15 a.m. due to a crash and debris.

It is not clear yet if the crash and debris in the road are related, they said.

Initially, one lane was blocked starting at 6:30 a.m. and then authorities decided to just shut down all lanes to clear the debris.

Over on eastbound I-74, the left lane is blocked near Colerain Avenue due to a crash.
