Snow squalls cripple morning commute

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Snow squalls created slick conditions across the Midstate Wednesday morning, causing traffic several traffic headaches.

Update as of 8 a.m.:

A crash is causing delays on I-81 north at mile marker 78, just north of the Grantville exit.

Earlier crashes on I-81 north near the Progress Avenue exit and on Route 283 near Spooky Nook Road have cleared but residual delays in the area persist.

Here are the latest traffic updates as of 7 a.m.:

Route 283 westbound is closed at Spooky Nook Road for a crash.

I-81 north is at a standstill because of an accident involving a tractor trailer at the Progress Avenue exit in Dauphin County. Another crash just north of the Linglestown exit is also causing major delays.

I-83 southbound saw significant delays during the morning commute near the Strinestown exit because of a crash. That crash has cleared but the backlog remains.

A snow-slickened road is also blamed for a crash in Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County where an SUV went into a small stream near the entrance to Brightbill Park after the driver lost control near the corner of Abbington and Berwyn drives.

The driver was able to get out of her vehicle on her own.

Several school districts delayed the start of class because of the road conditions.  You can check the latest delays at www.abc27.com/closings.
