At least three separate traffic accidents impacted traffic on Interstate 70 and Interstate 465 Thursday afternoon.
Two overturned tractor-trailers closed a ramp of I-70 Thursday afternoon before 5 p.m.
The ramp from eastbound I-70 to northbound I-465 near the Indianapolis International Airport was closed shortly after 3 p.m.
No injuries were reported in the crash.
Another crash involved an overturned vehicle in the middle of I-465 on the city's south side.
No serious injuries were reported.
A third accident involved a multi-vehicle crash in the westbound lanes of I-70 just east of the 41 mile marker.
Officials said only one person was injured and the injuries were not life-threatening.
Traffic was being diverted to State Road 39 north to U.S. 40.
The westbound lanes were closed until 9:30 p.m. to clean the wreckage and clean approximately 500 gallons of diesel fuel, officials said.
