High snow banks limit visibility at intersections
Motorists and pedestrians urged to proceed cautiously

 

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists and pedestrians are asked to use extreme caution and proceed slowly at intersections, as high snow banks are limiting visibility at intersections and driveways.

 

In areas with high snow banks, motorists should slow down and anticipate that another vehicle or pedestrian could be approaching the intersection. Approaching drivers and pedestrians should do so with extreme caution and not assume that others can see you.

 

MnDOT snowplow operators have been extremely busy clearing the roads. When crews complete work of pushing snow to the sides, they will begin removing  snow and transporting to selected disposal sites.
