No travel advised in Kandiyohi, Meeker and eastern Chippewa counties

WILLMAR, Minn. — (6:00 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no travel on state highways in Kandiyohi, Meeker and eastern Chippewa counties due to zero visibility and heavy snowfall.

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 in these counties 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.
