Two wrecks have been cleared from I-475 that snarled traffic for much of Wednesday.
The first accident, which occurred about 10:40 a.m. Wednesday, involved the southbound side of the interstate, according to a sheriff's office news release.
The second accident occurred around 11 a.m. on the northbound side of I-475. All lanes of travel on the northbound side were closed, according to the release.
No serious injuries were reported.
Never miss a local story.
The sheriff's office and Monroe County Emergency Management Agency are urging motorists to only travel if "absolutely necessary."
If traveling, dress for extreme cold, take a fully charged cell phone with a portable charger and only use a car in good mechanical condition with a full fuel tank. Stranded motorists should call for help immediately. While waiting for a tow truck, a vehicle will burn about a gallon of fuel per hour while idling. If fuel runs low, authorities suggest running the engine in 15 minute increments to stay warm, according to a news release.
