No travel advisories lifted in southcentral Minnesota

MANKATO, Minn. – (9 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation has lifted the no travel advisory on state highways in southcentral Minnesota.

Visibility has improved; however, roads are snow and ice covered and slippery. Motorists are advised to reduce speeds and drive according to conditions.

Motorists should:

  • Stay alert for snowplows, which turn or exit frequently and often with little warning. They also may travel over centerlines or partially in traffic to further improve road conditions.
  • Stay back at least 10 car lengths behind the plow. Don’t drive into a snow cloud.
  • Slow down to a safe speed for current conditions.
  • Turn on your headlights and wear your seat belt.
  • Turn off the cruise control.
  • Be patient and remember snowplows are working to improve road conditions for your trip.
  • Don’t drive distracted.
