Lane one on the M6 northbound is expected to remain closed for the rest of the week after Sunday afternoon's fatal crash.
One lane is closed and there is slow traffic due to emergency repairs on M6 Northbound between J10 A454 (Walsall / Wolverhampton) and J10A M54.
There is congestion on M6 to J7 A34 (Great Barr) and on M5 to J1 A41 (West Bromwich).
To carry out repair works after 'extensive damage' Highways England have said the hard shoulder between J10 and 10a northbound will remain closed for the next few days.
Barriers and cameras were badly damaged and works were carried out throughout the night to reopen the motorway.
This was a difficult recovery operation as the HGV ended up halfway down the embankment.
All three lanes have just reopened, however due to the nature of the damage, the hard shoulder will remain closed between junctions 10 and 10a northbound for the next couple of days to enable all repairs to be completed.
Drivers should leave slightly longer for their journeys while it is closed as this section of the motorway, near the exit for the M54 motorway, can get very busy. We thank drivers for their patience and understanding.
On Sunday night Highways England worked with Staffordshire police and V festival organisers to ensure those leaving Weston Park were aware of the motorway closure and could either find alternative routes or stay at the ground overnight.
The M6 Northbound has reopened between junction 10 for Walsall and Junction 10a for the M54.
Lane one (of four) remains closed following the crash. Lane closure is expected to remain in place throughout the morning peak period.
#M6 northbound J10-J10a has now reopened after the serious collision yesterday and the protracted and complex recovery operation overnight.
The carriageway was closed since Sunday afternoon following a multi-vehicle crash.
Police say one man died in the incident involving a van pulling a trailer, a car, and a HGV.
