From Illinois State Police District 10:
Update: As of 10:00 IDOT has salted the roadway on I-72 westbound at milepost 174. Both lanes westbound have been reopened.
Even through IDOT has treated the roadway, there is still a potential for the roadway to remain slick. The extreme temperatures, recent fire-extinguishing efforts in that area, and the effectiveness of the salt on the roads in these temperatures may still pose a hazard. Please use caution and drive safe.
Earlier: As of 9:15 p.m (1/4) ISP are on the scene of a vehicle fire on I-72 west at milepost 174 near Mahomet Exit. The left lane is currently open, the right lane is closed. Troopers are waiting for IDOT salt trucks to treat the roadway before reopening the right lane. Please use caution when approaching the area. Please remember to slow down and move over for emergency crews. No injuries are reported at the time.
