The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising no travel on Interstate-94 and all state highways in Stearns County.
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.
No travel is advised until conditions improve.
Driving conditions remain hazardous in other areas of central Minnesota. A combination of high sustained wind speeds, wind gusts and ice covered or compacted roads in Stearns, Wright, Benton, Sherburne and Mille Lacs counties and bordering areas are contributing to difficult driving and crashes.
MN-DOT says plows are now out on every state road in the counties listed and operate between 20 and 30 miles per hour during a snow storm. For real-time traffic and travel information in Minnesota, visit www.511mn.org .
