Only one no travel advisory remains in southwest MN

WILLMAR, Minn. — (1:15 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has lifted every no travel advisory on state highways in southwest Minnesota except one. Motorists should use caution, however, if traveling today as roads are slippery with compacted snow and ice. Snowplows are out and crews continue to clear and treat roads throughout the area.

The following state highway segment remains under a no travel advisory due to hazardous driving conditions.

  • U.S. Highway 75 – Ivanhoe to Canby

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 the roadway 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.
