Good news commuters! The accident which resulted in a fatality overnight on the Schuylkill EB near Gulph Mills is now CLEAR. All lanes are back open for travel. Drivers can still expect residual delays with a drive time of an hour from #KOP heading into the city. @CBSPhilly pic.twitter.com/qVBv1nUqBz
