    Route 37 in Cranston has reopened after police said it had been shutdown for about ten minutes due to the icy roads conditions.

    State police responded to numerous car crashes Sunday evening because of black ice.

    Authorities advised drivers not to travel and to stay off the roads if possible until the Department of Public Works crews can treat the hazardous roads.

    "Although we cannot order people off the roads, we ask that if motorists do not have to travel to please stay off the roads as our Department of Public Works crews work to treat the icy conditions," said police in a press release.
