MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Snowy, slippery roads are disrupting morning rush hour traffic across much of southern Wisconsin, including a multi-vehicle wreck on the Beltline.

Authorities confirmed a five-vehicle crash in the eastbound lanes of the Beltline, near the South Towne interchange, around 6:45 a.m. blocked multiple lanes of traffic.

At one point, all east bound lanes were completely shut down. An update on the Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation around 7 a.m. showed at least one lane had re-opened.

The highway had reopened about an hour after the crash.
