ISP Update: Connersville District

February 3rd, 2009 at 1:04 pm by under Breaking News

Troopers in the Connersville District are currently working a series of crashes and slide offs on I-70 in Henry County from the 115 mile marker to the 129 mile marker including a four vehicle crash between the 125 and 126 mile marker which involves no injuries. Eastbound I-70 is shut down at this location due to a semi partially blocking the roadway.

Motorists should find an alternate route due to heavy snow and ice and low visibility on I-70 through Henry County. Motorists may exit at the Knightstown SR 109 exit and go south to US 40 or exit at SR 3 at the 123 mile marker and go south to US 40. The Semi will have to be removed to reopen I-70 east bound. I will send out another bulletin as soon as the roadway is reopened.
