PHOENIX — The southbound lanes of State Route 51 near Bethany Home Road reopened early Tuesday, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Traffic temporarily closed on Monday night, ADOT said.

Vehicles were forced to exit SR 51 at or before Glendale Avenue.

The closure was due to a crash that blocked multiple lanes and held up traffic.

The northbound lanes were unaffected.
