There were delays of up to an hour on the M5 Bristol to the M4 Almondsbury interchange after a serious crash involving three lorries and a car.
The collision occurred at around 6am with emergency services called to the M5 southbound between Thornbury and the M4.
A mechanical sweeper was deployed to help clear a large amount of hay that was shed by a lorry during the crash.
There are no reports of any serious injuries and Highways England reopened the lanes a few hours earlier than expected.
