CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Several crashes slowed interstates during the morning rush Friday.

Some are still blocking lanes and causing delays:

  • EB I-74/U.S. 52 just reopened at the Colerain Avenue/Beekman Street exit. Vehicles exited onto Colerain Avenue for nearly two hours after a car spun off into the median due to black ice.
  • SB I-71/75 at the rest stop in Florence remains partially blocked by an overturned box truck.
  • WB I-275 is open again past the exit for eastbound U.S. 52/New Richmond in Anderson Township. The highway was closed for an hour earlier Friday morning due to a two-vehicle crash. At least one person was hurt and taken to Christ Hospital, according to dispatch.
  • Both right and left shoulders were blocked on NB I-71 at U.S. 50 in downtown Cincinnati. Both are now open.

Earlier, several northern Kentucky school districts were on two-hour delays as residents woke up to a light coating of snow on neighborhood and other side streets with temperatures bottoming out in the low 20s.
