Rochester, Minnesota (WXOW) – Due to the difficult driving conditions, the Minnesota Department of Transportation advises drivers to stay off the roads if possible due to icy patches, blowing snow and reduced visibility.
Snow operators are doing their part to make highways safe. Motorists should remember to drive slowly, use a safe speed for winter driving conditions, and keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. They should also use both hands on the steering wheel; keep their eyes on the road and attention on their driving.
Officials do not anticipate any interstate or highway closures at this time. However, motorists may encounter brief land and road closures where crashes occur.
