Update: No travel advised on several road segments in Lincoln, Lyon, Redwood, and Murray counties

WILLMAR, Minn. – (7:45 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is advising no travel on the following road segments due to blowing and drifting snow creating hazardous driving conditions:

  • Highway 30 - Woodstock Corner to Westbrook
  • U.S. Highway 14 - Stateline to U.S. Highway 71
  • Highway 19 - Marshall to Redwood Falls
  • U.S. Highway 59 - Marshall to Fulda
  • U.S. Highway 71 – Redwood Falls to U.S. Highway 14

No Travel Advised means that the roadway has deteriorated and/or visibility has been reduced to the point that it is very dangerous to travel; there are reports of intermittent white out conditions; and, some weather conditions can be severe enough that road treatments, such as salt or sand, are not effective.

Motorists are advised not to travel on these road segments until conditions improve.

The public can view winter road conditions from plow cameras available through the 511mn.org website. Please note that not all plows have cameras. Road conditions on major highways can also be viewed through the Road Weather Information System (RWIS), which is also part of 511.
