RPD: Eastbound Harrison Avenue between 20th Street and Ohio Parkway is shutdown due to slick conditions and numerous accidents. Use caution at the North Second/Spring Creek interchanges as that area is also extremely slick. Drive slowly and carefully this morning!


We all knew it was coming.  The first snow fall, brings a lot of accidents.

Several accidents are being reported all over the area.

The worst ones are on the bypass  and also business 20, I-39 and also on I-90. Other roads that are being reported that are very slick: Caledonia road, N Second, Perryville, Harrison, Mulford, Bridge st, N Main, RT 75, Pretty much every main road is slick this morning via RS fan reports.

Several cars in the ditches, some have rolled over.  Extrication was needed at a one of the scenes,  at Montague and 20.

Injuries have been reported, but I have yet to hear any life threatening injuries. Sounds like most are non life threatening injuries.

Please allow extra time to travel this morning, drive slow and safe

Another violent day in the city of Rockford and surrounding areas.
