MONROE, Mich. (AP) — Icy road conditions are causing problems across the state, including a stretch of Interstate 75 in southeastern Michigan.

A semi-truck crash north of Monroe shut down part of the freeway for several hours on Wednesday morning. WWJ-AM reports traffic was moving again.

No injuries were reported.

The crash comes after authorities in Monroe County warned people to stay off the roads if possible through Wednesday morning. The advisory issued Tuesday asked people to stay off primary, secondary and side roads unless needed for work or emergencies.

Crews spent the day removing snow and stuck vehicles. Winds made the problem worse, sending snow onto roads that had been cleared.

The arctic blast was easing its grip on Michigan, but bitterly cold temperatures are expected throughout Wednesday in the state.
