Drivers in Middlesbrough are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys this morning following the closure of the southbound side of the A19 Tees Flyover.
The southbound carriageway is closed after a lorry collided with the central reservation barrier just before 5.30am.
Contractors for Highways England are currently at the scene, and a diversion is in place.
