ISP reported that there was one fatal crash, near milepost 14 of I-84, but no details were immediately available.

ORIGINAL POST: 9 a.m.

Pea soup-thick fog and black ice made Monday morning particularly treacherous on Treasure Valley roadways. A dense fog advisory remained in effect throughout the morning as motorists crawled across Interstate-84.

Several bad wrecks on both sides of I-84 were reported between Black Canyon Road to the Idaho/Oregon border, prompting Idaho State Police to close the stretch of highway until further notice. Motorists were being rerouted through New Plymouth and Fruitland in Payette County and then over local roads to Ontario, Ore.

The National Weather Service office in Boise said the fog will return Monday night and Tuesday morning, and patchy fog remains in the forecast at least until Thursday.

Meanwhile, flights were taking off and landing at the Boise Airport, with only minor delays being reported.
