TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Riley County Police Department is urging drivers to use caution on K-18 after they responded to multiple accidents and slide-offs in the area Monday morning.

Around 8 a.m. they issued an alert asking people to avoid the busy stretch of road at west 56th Ave. near Manhattan Regional Airport.

They said they had to shut down K-18 in both directions and divert traffic onto 56th Ave. as crews worked to clear the accidents.

The road has since re-opened, but RCPD asks drivers to use caution as K-18 is still very slick.
