CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Watch for major delays on southbound Interstate 75 at Galbraith Road as you head out on your morning commute Thursday.

A semi crash turned this major route into a parking lot.

The semi jackknifed just after 5 a.m., blocking all lanes of traffic.

Crews opened the left lane after nearly an hour and then all southbound lanes again to make way for a tow truck to haul the massive vehicle away.

Traffic is backed up for several miles.

The drive-time from West Chester Township to Downtown is at least an hour.

All lanes are now finally open again, but this remains a major trouble spot.

Roads are wet from showers and thunderstorms that began overnight and are expected to continue off and on through Friday.
