GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Law enforcement are asking people to drive carefully Wednesday morning as light snow causes slippery conditions on bridges and overpasses.

“Bridges and overpasses are exceptionally slippery this morning due to the near freezing conditions,” says Lt. John Bain of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office.

Road conditions have improved since the early morning hours, but those untreated areas could still be slick.

First Alert Traffic has been following a number of crashes and lane closures in Brown County and Outagamie County. Many of the major crashes have been cleared.

First Alert Chief Meteorologist Steve Beylon says Sheboygan reported two inches of snow. Manitowoc measured 1.5 inches of snow.

Green Bay’s Leo Frigo Bridge was closed to traffic for about one hour Wednesday morning due to multiple crashes.
