ROCHESTER, Minn. – (10:20 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no unnecessary travel on Highway 52 southbound between Cannon Falls and Zumbrota, due to icy roads.
Motorists should beware of blowing and drifting snow and need to drive with extreme caution in this area.
Officials do not anticipate any interstate or highway closures at this time; however, motorists may encounter brief lane and road closures where crashes occur.
MnDOT snow plow operators are doing their part to make highways safe. Motorists should remember to:
- Drive slowly on bridges, overpasses and tunnels.
- Use a safe speed for winter driving conditions, regardless of the posted speed limit.
- Keep a safe stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you.
- Keep both hands on the steering wheel, eyes on the road and attention on your driving.
