Many Schools Closed Monday As Secondary Roads Remain Icy
The Illinois Department of Transportation is reporting Interstate 57 and 64 in Marion and Jefferson Counties as having scattered slippery spots. Other Interstates in Southern Illinois are reported mostly clear of ice and snow, with some scattered slippery spots on Interstates in Central Illinois which received snow Sunday.
Secondary roads in the cities and rural roads across most of the region are still ice and snow covered and hazardous. If you're traveling use extreme caution. The Marion County Sheriff's Department handled several non-injury accidents Sunday where vehicles had slid off the icy roads.
