Interstates see closures all over state due to wind, snow

INDIANAPOLIS - While many Indiana counties sit under orange travel watches, one interstate was partially closed in multiple areas Saturday morning after several semis jackknifed in the windy, slick road conditions.

At roughly 6:30 a.m., the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) said Interstate 65 North was closed from Franklin to Edinburgh after a few semi tractor-trailers slid and jackknifed on the roadway.

UPDATE at 8 a.m.: Northbound I-65 in Johnson County now has at least one lane back open, but lane closures are still apparent in other locations along the interstate.

Meanwhile, Interstate 69 had problems of its own, with a jackknifed semi shutting down all southbound lanes of traffic at roughly 11:30 a.m.

Throughout the morning, INDOT tweeted several spots on I-65 (and other interstates) were seeing lane closures due to crashes. Find current closing alerts right now on RTV6's Twitter feed.
