Heavy rain has caused widespread flooding across Huntingdonshire, with large sections of the motorway badly affected.
The westbound lane of the A1 has been closed between junction 21 at Brampton Hut and junction 19 at Easton because the carriageway is flooded.
Diversions have been put in place up the A1 to Peterborough, and back down the A605 to Oundle.
Delays have spread back to the Black Cat roundabout and the junction with the A428.
There has also been a lane closure on the A14 eastbound between junction 18 at Spaldwick and junction 21 with the A1, at Brampton Hut.
