The westbound A14 between Newmarket and Cambridge will be closed until this evening after a major fuel spill.
Two lorries collided on the road close to junction 35 at Stow-cum-Quay at 6.10am.
Highways England has been forced to close the road between the A11 (junction 36) and junction 34 as up to 100m of carriageway needs to be resurfaced following a fuel spill.
Motorists are being warned of severe delays in the area.
Traffic is being diverted via the A11, A505 and M11, re-joing the A14 at junction 31.
