I-65 reopens in NW Ind., although it remains icy

Indianapolis — Highway officials have reopened Interstate 65 in northwestern Indiana although they say it remains dangerously icy.

The state highway department reopened I-65 between Lafayette and Merrillville on Tuesday morning after shutting it down Monday evening. That section was open for only a few hours Monday following its initial shutdown from Sunday's heavy snowfall.

Officials say some roads in northwestern Indiana are unpassable from drifting snow, especially in Newton, Jasper and Lake counties.

Travel around the state was further troubled Tuesday morning by semitrailer crashes on I-69 southwest of Fort Wayne and I-70 a few miles west of Indianapolis. Those roads are back open after lanes were closed for a couple hours.
