MARENGO — McHenry County Sheriff's deputies shut down part of Route 20 in Marengo Tuesday morning after cars ran off the icy roadway.

The sheriff's office sent an alert around 8 a.m. Tuesday asking motorists to avoid Route 20 in Marengo. Deputies shut the road down from West Union Road to Interstate 90 because it was covered in ice, and multiple cars were stuck, Sheriff's Deputy Sandra Rogers said.

No one was injured in the incident. A second alert was sent around 9:20 a.m., informing drivers the roadway had reopened.

Motorists were still advised to use caution when traveling in the area.
