Deteriorating weather conditions led to mutiple crashes Wednesday afternoon, and the lanes were closed for about a half-hour starting around 4:00.  The Blatnik is the official route of I-535 and U.S. Highway 53.

WisDOT reported snow-covered conditions on Highway 2 from Superior to Ironwood, as well as Highway 53 from Superior to the Douglas-Washburn County line.
