KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We are hearing a number of slide-offs, crashes and cars stuck on slippery roads and hills throughout West Michigan Friday morning.

In Kalamazoo, the hill on Maple Street west of Crosstown Parkway is seeing a major traffic back up. Cars are stuck on the hill because of the icy conditions.

The hill on Westnedge Avenue is also seeing heavy, slow moving traffic as snow piles on top of frozen roads caused by Thursday's warm up.

If you have to head out, drive slow and make sure you leave plenty of space in front of you.

Check traffic conditions in your area.
