No unnecessary travel advised due to difficult driving conditions


Tue, Jan 14th, 2014
Posted in All State of Minnesota

ROCHESTER, Minn. – (11:45 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no unnecessary travel in southeastern Minnesota because of difficult driving conditions due to icy patches, blowing snow and reduced visibility.



Officials do not anticipate any interstate or highway closures at this time; however, motorists may encounter brief lane and road closures where crashes occur.



MnDOT snow plow operators are doing their part to make highways safe. Motorists should remember to:



• Drive slowly on bridges, overpasses and tunnels.

• Use a safe speed for winter driving conditions, regardless of the posted speed limit.

• Keep a safe stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you.

• Keep both hands on the steering wheel, eyes on the road and attention on your driving.



For additional tips on safe winter driving, go to www.mndot.gov/workzone.



For updated information on road conditions, visit www.511mn.org or call 511.
