Schools delayed or closed, snowy commute for Wednesday
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Snow hampered the morning commute around central Indiana Wednesday, leading to interstate closures and delays or closings for area schools.
The heaviest snow fell east and southeast of Indianapolis. Several inches of snow were expected across the area.
Major interstate problems included westbound I-70 between State Road 109 and State Road 9 in Hancock County and eastbound I-74 near State Road 3 in Greensburg.
Follow updates this morning from our live blog.
‼️TRAFFIC ALERT: WB I-70 is CLOSED between SR 109 and SR 9 in #HancockCounty due to jackknifed semi. In the meantime, I'd use US-40 as an alternate route. (You can also take SR 109 north to SR 234 as another option) @indy_traffic @CBS4Indy pic.twitter.com/lMXa4M41st
