Snowfall creates traffic problems

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The first snowfall of this winter season created some travel problems across the Tri-state Monday morning.

Snow began moving in to the area early Monday morning and began moving out around 8 a.m. In total, less than a half inch of accumulation fell. Get the latest weather conditions on our weather page.

However, the colder temperatures created some slick spots on the roadways.

Road crews in Cincinnati were out overnight pre-treating the drainage areas and bridges with brine. Crews are continuing to work on the primary roadways to make streets safe.

In Northern Kentucky, crews are out treating the roads in Boone, Carroll, Gallatin, Kenton and Campbell County.

Several accidents scattered the interstate Monday morning. The ramp from Interstate 75 to westbound I-74 was shut down for nearly two hours because vehicles were having problems getting through due to icy conditions. You can stay up-to-date on traffic conditions with our Traffic Tracker.

A few schools were also delayed.
