The Oregon Department of Transportation reports icy conditions on many roads throughout Northwest Oregon this morning. This has resulted in a number of crashes.

Moisture overnight, combined with near freezing temperatures early this morning, have caused black ice conditions.

Motorists are urged to slow down, leave plenty of driving distance between vehicles and be alert to the slick condition.
