***UPDATE*** 1:42 p.m.:
Our news partner the Longview News-Journal reports, I-20 reopened around 12:30 p.m., but traffic is still blocked in westbound lanes by stuck semi-trailer trucks.
An earlier closure involving the eastbound lanes just east of Texas 69 was caused by a tanker truck overturned. Both lanes were blocked while crews cleaned up a chemical spill and removed the truck.
TxDot crews are currently sanding and salting the area to alleviate some of the problems.
Shiloh Rd. in Tyler is closed between Paluxy Rd. and Edinburgh.
CR 472 in Lindale has been closed.
DPS Officials say that they have not closed 271 near UT, but warn drivers to be cautious there. It is very iced over and there are a lot of cars getting stuck.
Interstate 20 traffic is backed up.
