AUSTIN (KXAN) — Northbound Interstate 35 reopened near Round Rock after an 18-wheeler jackknifed Thursday.

The 18-wheeler was towed away around 7:15 a.m. just past Ranch to Market Road 620. Traffic in the area is moving slowly in the area.

TxDOT did say it pre-treated parts of I-35 before this crash, but the area it mentioned treating was just north of where the crash occurred. They still don’t want people to travel this morning if they don’t have to.

This should be the last day of prolonged freezing temperatures in the area. The KXAN First Warning Weather team says we should get above the freezing mark during the day Friday, but at night temperatures will drop below. Once the weekend hits, we’ll be seeing spring-like weather and leftover snow and ice should melt.
