State Patrol is Recommending No Unnecessary Travel Through the Weekend

The Minnesota State Patrol says road conditions remain incredibly dangerous and officials are urging everyone to stay off the highways unless travel is absolutely necessary.

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Transportation says motorists can expect major delays on a stretch of westbound Interstate 90 in southeastern Minnesota.

Crews are working to remove snow on westbound I-90 between Stewartville and Dexter and make the lanes passable Friday afternoon.

MnDOT is using heavy equipment and snow blowers to open the westbound lanes of I-90. Westbound traffic will be stopped for 20-30 minutes at a time while crews move forward on the 13-mile stretch.

Traffic will then be sent through. The traffic that arrives next will be stopped while more snow is removed.

Eastbound I-90 is open and drivable.

Many highways in southeastern Minnesota are limited to a single lane because of drifting snow. Other highways are impassable.
