AUSTIN -- An overpass in North Austin caused problems for drivers Friday morning.

The Austin Police Department shut down portions of U.S. 183 near SH 45 because of icy conditions. A couple of drivers stopped and told KVUE that the roads were icy and slick on the overpass near Lakeline Mall.

The exit toward SH 45 east reopened just after 9 a.m.

APD says a few crashes occurred in that area Friday before 7 a.m. Police are urging people to be safe if they have to drive.

TxDOT is out with more than a dozen vehicles, monitoring roads and trying to make sure they are safe for everyone. The SH 45 toll road was one of the biggest problems Friday.

TxDOT says to give yourself plenty of time if you are heading into work.
