WILLMAR, Minn. – (9:30 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation has returned several state highway segments to no travel advised due to strong winds and blowing snow which continue to create intermittent whiteout conditions. Drivers are advised not to travel on the following roads 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 intermittent white out conditions; and, some weather conditions can be severe enough that road treatments, such as salt or sand, are not effective.
The public can view winter road conditions from plow cameras available through the www.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.
