- Hwy 68 from the state line to Canby in Yellow Medicine County
- Hwy 19 from the state line to Marshall in Lincoln and Lyon counties

Strong winds and heavy snow have created low visibility and drifts which are quickly backfilled as soon as they are plowed. No travel is advised until conditions improve.
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 whiteout conditions; and some weather conditions can be severe enough that road treatments are not effective, and conditions can become life-threatening for stranded travelers.
