Interstate 55/Hwy 32 now open in Ste Genevieve County

STE GENEVIEVE, MO (KFVS) - Drivers on Interstate 55 had to find another way to get through late Wednesday night.

According to the Ste Genevieve County sheriff's department, emergency crews shut down a portion of Interstate 55 from the 148 mile marker to the 154 mile marker.

The department says the interstate was shut down because of icy roads and the large number of wrecks.

The interstate wasn't the only road that had to be shut down.  The sheriff's department says the entire stretch of highway 32 was also shut down.

Deputies are asking people to stay inside if they do not absolutely have to go out.

MODOT says one of the biggest problems is black ice.  They say that's when the roads only look wet, but are actually slick and icy.
