Multiple trucks collided on the Cross Bronx Expressway eastbound near the Major Deegan Expressway at 4:06 a.m., FDNY says.

The incident temporarily closed eastbound lanes between Jerome and Webster avenues, impacting inbound upper-level traffic.

All lanes were reopened by 8 a.m.

The ordeal caused delays of more than 2 hours for commuters headed to the George Washington Bridge’s upper level tolls.

Alternative routes also faced delays, including an hour at the Lincoln Tunnel and 30 minutes at the Holland Tunnel.

It was not immediately known if anyone was injured in the crash.
