(WLNS) – If you are heading out on the roads this morning police caution you to be careful and slow down.

Icy roads are causing slide-offs and collisions all across the area.

Traffic was blocked for about one-half hour just after 7:00 a.m. at Larch and East North Street due to multiple collisions.

Waverly Road and I-96 was closed before 8:00 a.m. because of crashes but that has since re-opened.

A two car crash at Pine Tree and Willoughby Road in Delhi Township created traffic issues there.

6 News meteorologist Emily Wahls says dropping temperatures and overnight rain/snow is causing the slick roads.
