The M20 coast-bound has been reopened at junction 9 after a crash involving four lorries.
However, traffic is being diverted off the slip road at junction 10 and back onto the motorway via the on-slip at the same junction.
Motorists are advised there are delays in the area which will continue until this evening. Recovery of the lorries has not been completed yet.
Two of the lorries had to be unloaded to enable this. The road, when clear of the lorries and debris, will then need to be assessed for damage and repair.
Two lorry drivers were taken to hospital after the incident with serious injuries. The other two lorry drivers were uninjured.
