CLEVELAND (WJW) — Many in Northeast Ohio woke up to at least a dusting of snow Saturday morning, and multiple vehicle accidents caused slowdowns on our roadways.
The backup on I-77 at Wallings Road, as seen in the video above, caused at least a 40-minute slow down following a crash around 8:15 a.m.
Police closed down the I-77 Northbound ramp that heads to I-480 Eastbound following at least one crash and disabled vehicles, the Chagrin Valley Dispatch reported around 6 a.m., and it took hours to clear.
There were also lane closures on I-480 and I-271. Find the most up-to-date road closures at ohgo.com.
While emergency crews worked to clear crashes, the Ohio Department of Transportation continued working to remove snow, ice and keep roads safe.
As of 7:30 a.m., ODOT tweeted: “Nearly 180 crews remain on the road, mostly in northern Ohio, treating and plowing roadways. Snow continues to fall in NE Ohio, so be extra alert for quickly changing conditions and give crews plenty of room to work.”
People are reminded to drive carefully.
