Snowy roads and crashes closed stretch of I-39

Posted by wlpo on March 2, 2012

The drive home took an hour or two longer for people using Interstate 39 Friday evening.  The snowfall left the road slick enough that cars and semis were crashing.

Traffic was stopped in both north and southbound lanes between Mendota and PawPaw.

A dispatcher with Illinois State Police District 1 said the northbound lanes had reopened by 6:30pm and southbound lanes were expected to reopen shortly after that.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
