Oregon Department of Transportation, Portland Bureau of Transportation and Washington State Department of Transportation crews have been working through the night and morning to keep roads safe for commuters. But drivers should be cautious of slick conditions with temperatures below freezing.

Crashes have been reported across the city, but thankfully there have been no major injuries.

Portland police reported a crash involving about 10 vehicles near Northeast 82nd and Northeast Sandy. Only minor injuries were reported.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area due to slick roads.

Another wreck was reported at Northeast 148th and Northeast Glisan. Police said a vehicle could not stop and slid into a turning gasoline tanker. No injuries were reported.

TriMet said there have been no major issues for MAX or WES lines. Five bus lines have been temporarily canceled - lines 11, 18, 51, 63, and 82.

TriMet also said some buses were using either traditional chains or automatic drop down chains in slick areas. Chained buses can't go faster than 25 miles per hour, and riders should plan on extra time for Tuesday morning's commute.
