A bridge that was closed for icy conditions and accidents has reopened after about five hours.
All traffic was stopped around 8 p.m. Thursday in both directions of the Carroll Cropper Bridge. That meant backups for miles to the Petersburg exit in Kentucky, and for about a mile back to the U.S. 50 Lawrenceburg/ Greendale exit in Dearborn County, Indiana.
On the Indiana side at least, traffic was backed up for a long way before the route 50 exit as not all drivers wanted to or were able to exit there.
Several accidents and slow spots were reported else across the Tri-State.
Dispatchers in Northern Kentucky reported several spin-outs between Kyles Lane and I-275 late Thursday evening.
Earlier in the evening traffic started getting back to normal speeds on I-275, east of I-75 in Sharonville, as well as I-75 in West Chester, two areas that were among the first to freeze up during the sudden snow showers Thursday night. In general the bad weather hit first in the north and on elevated roads, then moved southeast, so I-275 across Northern Hamilton County was starting to improve just as I-471 was slowing to a stop in Campbell County.
The 275 bridge was an exception, backing up almost as soon as the bad weather arrived.
Kyle Peavley was headed from near Middletown to the Hollywood Casino to celebrate a friend's birthday party. A half an hour before the U.S. 50 exit, traffic ground to a halt. While he was stuck, he saw people trying turn their cars and trucks around in the grass medians.
He saw others who were even trying to drive in the grass to the right of emergency lanes, which were already full of stopped cars, risking their vehicles plunging down the hillside. He also saw an ambulance going to a car on the opposite side of the highway. He said he didn't see any police, and there was no room for salt trucks to get through.
Cincinnati Public Works issued this statement about how they were handling the storm:
"City crews are responding to a bout of snow that begin passing through the area earlier this evening. Cold temperatures and quickly falling snow has resulted in slick driving conditions on many area roadways.
Throughout the evening, crews will focus on treating primary roadways and main thoroughfares. Residential roadways will begin to receive treatment once precipitation has subsided and once hazardous conditions on primary roads have been improved.
The primary focus tonight will be on making roadways as safe as possible for the morning commute."
