Icy Road Conditions Shut Down Central Illinois

Nearly a tenth of an inch of ice shut down most of Central Illinois Monday morning as freezing rain moved through the area.  A winter weather advisory is in effect today (1/22) into Tuesday morning (1/23) for freezing rain. Ice accumulations between one-tenth and one-quarter of an inch with a potential for higher amounts east of I-39 and north of I-74.


ISP has reported multiple crashes on I-72 and Taylorville Police and the Christian County Sheriff have asked for people to stay home today if possible, and if you must leave the house, give yourself plenty of time to get to where you need to go and plenty of room to brake. 


If you are going out and going to a business, or to your work, give them a call to make sure the business is open as a lot of businesses are closed today or have reduced hours. Make sure you keep devices charged in case of power outages, and visit gettingaroundillinois.com for the latest on road conditions.  You can also see event delays and cancellations on taylorvilledailynews.com.
