Roads closed Friday for weather and wrecks
01/15/2021

(KNZA)--Several area roadways closed for periods on Friday due to the winter weather that moved into the local area.

According to an emergency alert issued shortly before 1:00 Friday afternoon by the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office, K-63 Highway was temporarily closed, leaving it off-limits to traffic, due to a jack knifed semi tractor-trailer.

A second alert, issued around 2:30 Friday afternoon, stated that the highway had re-opened, but motorists should use caution while traveling.

The alert called roadways “questionable,” adding that increased wind had decreased visibility.

The Kansas Department of Transportation announced another closure later Friday afternoon, with South U.S. Highway 75 closed between K-20 and U.S. Highway 36.

According to the release, the closure, which took effect around 1:30, was to remain in place for approximately two hours. It was requested by law enforcement to allow them to clear up some crashes, with the local winter weather playing a role.
