BLAINE, Wash. — All southbound lanes of Interstate 5 just south of Blaine reopened Wednesday morning after being closed for nearly six hours due to a crash.

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) first reported the crash just south of Peach Portal Drive (milepost 273) around 5:30 a.m.
