Several state highways returned to no travel advised in southwest MN

WILLMAR, Minn. — (9:30 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation has returned several state highway segments to no travel advised due to strong winds and blowing snow which continue to create intermittent whiteout conditions. Drivers are advised not to travel on the following roads until conditions improve.

  • Hwy 14 - South Dakota border to Tracy
  • Hwy 19 - Marshall to Vesta
  • Hwy 30 - Pipestone to Westbrook
  • Hwy 59 – Marshall to Fulda
  • Hwy 68 – Hwy 19 to Wabasso
  • Hwy 91 – Hwy 14 to Chandler

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.

The public can view winter road conditions from plow cameras available through the 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.
