Crash involving more than 20 vehicles closes part of I-39

Posted: Updated:

A multi-car crash involving more than 20 vehicles has closed part of I-39 in Marathon County near Knowlton, according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.

That's just north of the Marathon-Portage County line.

Sheriff's officials say I-39 has been closed to all northbound traffic. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the highway closed around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Officials there say all lanes of I-39 and US 51 northbound will be closed for more than two hours.

If you can, use alternate routes. Northbound traffic will exit at County Road DB and go west to Wisconsin 34, then east back to I-39, according to the Department of Transportation.

At least one injury has been reported, sheriff's officials said, but they didn't know how serious it was.
