JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) – State Police are reporting that I-80 will soon be closed in the far south suburbs, from Morris west to Ottawa, because of “impassable” blizzard conditions.

The interstate will be closed as soon as the Illinois Dept. of Transportation can get the barricades up, said Joliet District State Police Sgt. Chris Paluch, and the road will remain closed all night.

“It’s terrible,” Paluch said. “There are too many crashes and too many vehicles in ditches. You can’t even get to the cars anymore.”
