Motorists are being advised to use extreme caution while traveling throughout the Kanawha Valley Wednesday morning because of possible black ice.
Dispatchers said numerous reports of possible black ice have been reported, including on Frame Road in Elkview, Washington Street West and Dutch Hollow Road in Dunbar and along the southbound and northbound lanes of Interstate 77 in the Sissonville area.
A single-vehicle crash closed the fast southbound lane of I-77 near the Edens Fork exit in Sissonville earlier Tuesday. That portion of roadway reopened about 9 a.m. No serious injuries were reported.
If you have to travel, you are advised to use extreme caution.
