ELKHART — The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department announced this morning that at about 10:15 a.m. deputies closed the westbound lanes of the U.S. 20 bypass between Ind. 19 and Elm Road.
Police cited several crashes involving passenger vehicles and two semi-trucks in the area because of icy and slick road conditions.
Motorists are asked to avoid this area and seek alternative routes.
This section of the bypass will remain closed until officers have cleared the area and road conditions improve, police said.
