MnDOT lifts no travel advisory for portion of west central Minnesota

No travel advisory remains in effect for Clay County, Hwy 10 west of Detroit Lakes

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – (2:00 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation has lifted the no travel advisory on state and federal highways in Becker and Otter Tail counties only, as snowfall rates have declined.

A no travel advisory remains in effect on state and federal highways in Clay County, as well as Highway 10 from Moorhead to Detroit Lakes and Highway 108 from Interstate 94 to Pelican Rapids. Motorists are advised not to travel in these areas until conditions improve.

MnDOT urges motorists to drive with extreme caution and postpone travel if possible, as slippery and icy conditions may persist Sunday afternoon and overnight into Monday. Important: even if state and federal highways are passable, travel may still be difficult on county, township and municipal roads. Check with your local agencies for their road conditions.
