Thank you for everyone’s patience out on the road today. We try to keep traffic flowing, but keeping the victims and emergency workers (including our tow truck drivers) safe is our priority. We sometimes have to stop traffic for short periods in order to get the road way cleared quicker and keep everyone working the scene safe. Thank you ???
