Commuters driving on the A14 and to Ipswich were warned to expect congestion as lorries blocked key routes.
Just before 5.30am a lorry was reported to be stuck on the Orwell Bridge, Ipswich-bound. One lane of the road was blocked until a recovery team arrived at around 6.50am to pick-up the vehicle.
The slip road going on to the Copdock Interchange, from the Felixstowe-bound A14, was also blocked after a lorry broke down at around 6am.
This was cleared at around 7.15am. Police were aware of the problems and warned there were likely to be delays.
