CENTRAL NEW YORK (WSYR-TV) — Just after 4 p.m. Saturday, both the northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 81 around the Onondaga County and Cortland County line have been reopened. Earlier Saturday, the interstate was closed in both directions after multiple cars ended up in the median.

A NewsChannel 9 reporter who was at the scene says there were about six vehicles in the median stuck in the snow and provided the pictures below. State Police said there were no injuries, and vehicles were in the process of being removed as of 2 p.m.
