Here’s the latest from the Illinois State Police.
All crashes have been cleared from the roadway. I-57 at 226 is OPEN. A large number of cars remain in the ditches and medians along the interstate and have been marked with orange tape.
Between 6 AM and 11 AM Troopers in District 10 responded to 71 incidents, including 60 calls for service (cars in the ditch, motorist assists, crashes to be reported at a later time, etc). Troopers handled 12 total crash reports. 9 of the crashes were no injuries reported, and 3 of the crashes had injuries.
The roadways are still slick in spots, especially on bridges, overpasses, and ramps.
