680, 711 reopen after multiple accidents tangle traffic

News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Interstate 680, Route 11 and the Route 711 connector are open Friday after multiple accidents slowed traffic to a standstill in the area during the morning commute.

Police asked motorists to avoid the highways after at least a dozen accidents were reported in the area.

Frigid cold temperatures blanketing the area have created pockets of black ice on the roads, but it is not clear if the weather played a role in the accidents on I-680 and Route 711.
