MADISON, Wis. -

Slick roads from overnight snow caused traffic delays in some areas of southern Wisconsin Tuesday morning.

A crash on Interstate 39-90 near Janesville blocked both eastbound lanes at 6:38 a.m. It was expected to be blocked for about an hour. As of 8 a.m., traffic was still moving slow at mile marker 171. The crash was reported cleared at 8:11 a.m.

Another crash on the eastbound interstate was reported at about 9 a.m. at mile marker 177. It was reported as a two car crash with injuries.

Crashes were reported at about 8 a.m at North Shore near John Nolen Drive, John Nolen Drive at Blair Street, Franklin Avenue at Mason Street in Madison and at Highway 19 at County Road CV in Burke Township.

More than two dozen slide-offs were reported in Dane County since 6:30 a.m.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
