MnDOT advises no travel in southwest MinnesotaPublished by on
MINNESOTA - As of 11 a.m., the Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no travel in southwestern Minnesota, due to blowing snow and near zero visibility. Officials do not anticipate any interstate or highway closures at this time; however, motorists may encounter brief lane and road closures where crashes occur.
MnDOT snow plow operators are doing their part to make highways safe. Motorists should remember to stay back at least five car lengths behind the plow to stay out of the snow cloud. Also, stay alert for plows that turn or exit frequently. To check road conditions, visit www.511mn.org
