Riverbend concertgoers were struck in the middle of a big traffic jam on eastbound I-275 on the Combs-Hehl Bridge heading from Kentucky to Ohio on Saturday night. 

The good news: Traffic was moving at normal speeds again about two hours later.

Police said four accidents on the bridge shut down traffic on the eastbound bridge. One lane of eastbound traffic was routed over the westbound bridge so drivers could make connections to Riverbend and local exits. 

Riverbend tweeted this traffic advisory for concertgoers coming to see G-Easy with Lil Uzi Vert:

There was still a huge backup on the eastbound bridge after the accidents were cleared.

Cincinnati police tweeted that there were four accidents on the eastbound bridge.
