I-82 Closes Saturday Morning

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash--  Rain finally reaches the Tri-Cities, bringing with it warmer weather.  The rain helped melt some of the snow away, but that didn't mean roads were any safer.  I-82 Westbound was closed Saturday morning between the I-82 and I-182 intersection and Benton City for almost an hour. 

One sergeant from the Benton County Sheriff's Office tells us patches of black ice became a hazard, forcing some drivers to ditch their cars on the side of the road.
