Icy roads from Monday night's brief snowfall combined with the cold temperatures have led to several accidents along Pennsylvania roads.

Just before 9 p.m., PennDOT announced it had closed US 202 northbound at Chesterbrook Boulevard to Devon Park Drive due to the weather. Nearly an hour later, PennDOT crews were able to reopen the road.

Interstate-476 north was closed just before 10 p.m. between I-76 and Conshohocken due to icy conditions.

Several other roads were closed due to accidents, including US 1 northbound at PA 32 to the New Jersey line. PennDOT says the area reopened to traffic just before 10 p.m.

US 202 north was also closed at 4th Street and Washington Avenue due to a crash.

At 9:45 p.m., PennDOT closed Rt. 309 north at Easton Road to the Pennsylvania Turnpike due to a crash.
