In Louisville, Metrosafe reported the eastbound lanes of the Gene Snyder Freeway were closed near the I-65 interchange and the National Turnpike for about two hours Tuesday morning as police waited on salt trucks to arrive. Those lanes are now open.
In Shelbyville, all lanes of Taylorsville Road (Highway 55) were closed south of I-64 due to an injury accident that happened just before 6 a.m., according to Shelby County Dispatch. Those lanes are also now open.
Floyd County Dispatch have reported numerous accidents as well as a temporary road closure of Old Vincennes from Schreiber Road to East Luther.
Wrecks and slide offs have been reported across the metro everywhere from Dixie Highway to Mellwood Avenue due to slick conditions. The bottom line is use caution on the roads this morning.
By nature, black ice is transparent and roads may just look wet instead of icy even though the danger exists. It is especially likely to develop in elevated areas and on bridges and overpasses.
Road crews are working to salt streets as reports of ice come in but it is widespread and will take time to treat all affected areas.
As the day continues, the temperatures will rise and the threat will diminish. For the latest weather forecast, click here: http://bit.ly/1kRi4IA.
