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.
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.
