WILLMAR, Minn. — (1:15 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising no travel on the following road segments in Lac qui Parle, Chippewa, Lincoln, and Yellow Medicine counties. All state highways in these four counties are completely snow covered. Heavy snow and reduced visibility is creating hazardous driving conditions.

  • Hwy 40 from South Dakota border to Hwy 29
  • Hwy 29 from Hwy 40 to Hwy 7
  • Hwy 7/59 from Milan to Montevideo
  • Hwy 7 from Montevideo to Clara City
  • Hwy 23 from Clara City to Hanley Falls
  • U.S. Hwy 212 from South Dakota border to Renville
  • U.S. Hwy 75 from north Lac qui Parle county line to Ivanhoe

  • Hwy 275 from U.S. Hwy 212 to Boyd
  • U.S. Hwy 59 from U.S. Hwy 212 to Clarkfield

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.

Motorists are advised not to travel on these road segments until conditions improve.
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.
