MN-DOT says many roads in southern Minnesota remain snow- and ice-compacted after yesterday’s major storm. District Maintenance Engineer Jed Falgren in Mankato says postpone your trip if possible — and if you must drive, take your time. He says, “Sunny skies may lead you to believe that you can drive normally, but there is a lot of ice out there and very quickly drivers may lose control and end up in the ditch or even worse.”
Falgren says Interstate 90 and Highway 60 have the same problems as less-traveled roads. He says it will take a day or two to get roadways back to normal winter driving condition.
