UPDATED @ 11:30 a.m.

The roads in Butler County have improved throughout the morning and there haven’t been any recent weather-related crashes, county dispatchers are saying.

There were five or six crashes blamed on the weather early this morning, but dispatchers said there were many more slide-offs that just required tows. Most of the incidents of slick roads were in Hamilton and Liberty Twp.

The Butler County engineer called snow crews in at 11:30 p.m. and they treated roads on all 16 routes throughout the night, according to spokesman Chris Petrocy.

“This is one those cases where there was just a little bit of snow and a little bit of ice, but you still have to send all your crews out,” Petrocy said.

INITIAL REPORT

Butler County dispatchers are reporting several crashes due to slick roads this morning, but no serious crashes involving injuries have been reported.

Kyles Station Road between Butler Warren Road and Kyles Station Meadows Drive in Liberty Twp has been shut down while the road is treated.

Salt crews have been dispatched to treat roads countywide.
