No travel advised in portions of northwest Minnesota
Ice, snow and limited visibility create hazardous driving conditions

BEMIDJI, Minn. – (5:00 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has enacted a no travel advisory on multiple highways in northwest Minnesota due to blizzard conditions. MnDOT snowplows continue to operate, but motorists are advised not to travel in these areas until conditions improve.
No travel advised:

  • Hwy 1 – Warren to North Dakota border
  • Hwy 2 - Erskine to North Dakota border
  • Hwy 9 - Crookston to Borup
  • Hwy 75 - Warren to Perley
  • Hwy 102 – Crookston to Fertile
  • Hwy 200- Ada to North Dakota border
  • Hwy 220 – Climax to Alvarado

Please check 511mn.org for specific route information.
Motorists should plan accordingly. 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 are not effective, and conditions can become life-threatening for stranded travelers.

Important: road conditions shown on 511mn.org only reflect state highway conditions. Please check with your county, city and township for their road conditions and travel guidance.
