Crashes and slide-offs in Central Wisconsin


MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- Winter conditions are causing trouble on the roads.

There have been multiple crashes and slide-offs near Rib River Bridge near Marathon.

A section of Highway 29 in that area was closed Thursday morning but has reopened.

A Marathon County Deputy says there were no injuries.

We're also hearing reports of other crashes in our area.

Authorities ask you to be careful if you're heading out in these conditions and give plows plenty of room to clear the roads.
