Police were forced to completely close the M90 in both directions between the Crook of Devon and Kelty junctions following concerns for a man at about 9.45am.
The road was closed for more than an hour after officers were called to the scene.
Paramedics were also called to the scene and the man was taken to hospital to be treated for “serious injuries” following the incident.
A Fife Police Division statement issued just after 11am, after the road reopened, read: “We can confirm that the M90 has now reopened. The road was temporarily closed following reports of concern for a man.
“He has been taken to hospital with serious injuries. Members of the public are thanked for their patience.”
An earlier statement from the force said: “We are currently in attendance at junction four of the M90 following a report of concern for a person.
“The incident happened around 9.45am on Thursday, January 10. The Scottish Ambulance Service is also in attendance.
“The M90 is currently closed in both directions at junction five southbound and junction four northbound. Members of the public are thanked for their patience at this time.”
Traffic built up at both ends of the road around the closures.
