All lanes of I-39 northbound in Janesville have now been re-opened.

The southbound lanes of US 41 are closed at Mason Street in Green Bay due to a traffic accident - it should be closed for a couple hours.

9:51 a.m.
Both northbound lanes of I-39 in Janesville are blocked due to a crash. The closure is expected to take multiple hours to clear.

9:30 a.m.
The crashes continue on the Wisconsin freeway system.  US 41 near Neenah is shutdown on the northbound side after a cement truck crash.

That crash is going to take a couple hours to clean up.

7:38 a.m.
Need a little help shoveling snow this morning?  Gene Mueller's Snow Team can help.  Consider the 100-foot driveway they took care of this morning.

6:58 a.m.
Drivers on I-894 in Greenfield were slowed up as fire crews had to respond to a report of a vehicle with smoke.

The scene is clear on I-94 northbound in Racine County.

6:49 a.m.
Shoveling today?  There's good news and bad news based on the light snow and heavy winds. Storm Team 4's Jesse Ritka demonstrates...and has fun doing it.

6:43 a.m.
I-94 northbound in Racine County (technically westbound, but you're going north) at Highway G has the left lane closed after a three-vehicle crash.

6:34 a.m.
Good news for the drive on I-43 southbound...it should clear up at the Marquette Interchange after a disabled vehicle led to two lane closures.

6:07 a.m.
Two lanes of I-43 southbound have been closed in the Marquette Interchange after a disabled vehicle was discovered.  It should be cleared by 6:40 a.m.  Click here for Time Saver Traffic.

Things are mainly good on the freeways of Milwaukee, until you get to the side streets.

5:35 a.m.
The freeways may be fine, but as TODAY'S TMJ4's Jonah Kaplan discovered in Mequon, the side roads are - according to a plowman - "nasty."

5:09 a.m.
Milwaukee is digging out, clearing streets, and getting to some sort of normalcy after snowfall of up to half a foot led to hundreds of crashes in Southeastern Wisconsin, some with dozens of cars involved in pileups.

Four people died in these crashes.

The good news - the snow will be tapering off.  The bad news- the snow is so light, that blowing and drifting will be causing messes for drivers.
