I-80 re-opened at mile marker 217

IOWA COUNTY (KWWL) -- I-80 east bound is open again after an accident around mile marker 217.

The flakes continue to come down as we move into the afternoon, forcing motorists to travel at a snail's pace and its causing a slew of wrecks across eastern Iowa.

A stretch of eastbound I-80 had to be closed for several hours Wednesday morning after reports of an accident involving a semi near milemarker 217 west of Williamsburg.

The eastbound lanes were closed for about two hours, re-opening just after 11:00 a.m.

The Iowa County dispatcher said there were injuries.

There were also problems in other areas of the interstate... drivers ended up in the ditch or in the median.
