Snow showers caused some dangerous driving conditions Friday night in the Chicago area.

The Edens Expressway traffic slowed to a crawl. The snow reduced visibility and caused slippery road conditions.

Due to icy conditions on the expressways, the Illinois State Police are on their emergency snow plan.

Motorists involved in a crash where the vehicles are driveable are urged to exchange information and file a report at a later date

North Avenue in Villa Park from I-355 to Route 83 was shut down because of icy condition Friday night. It later reopened but traffic was still slow moving slowly on North Avenue late Friday night.
