Blowing snow clogs highways

Posted:

Blowing snow left large stretches of roads and highways covered in snow and littered with stranded cars Wednesday afternoon.

Several portions of U.S. 36 between Tuscola and Decatur were nearly impassable because of snow and occasional cars and trucks stuck in the roadway.

Likewise, westbound traffic on Interstate 72 west of Champaign was stopped because at mid-day because of a crash.

 Around 5 p.m., the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office said county highway plows would be removed from highways at 6 p.m. until conditions improve.
