No travel advised in nine southwest Minnesota counties

WILLMAR, Minn. – (12:00 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no travel on state highways in the following southwest Minnesota counties. Strong winds and blowing snow are creating whiteout conditions.

  • Western Chippewa

  • Lac qui Parle

  • Lincoln

  • Lyon

  • Murray

  • Pipestone

  • Western Redwood

  • Western Renville

  • Yellow Medicine

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, such as salt or sand, are not effective.

Motorists are advised not to travel in these counties until conditions improve.

The public can view winter road conditions from plow cameras available through the website. Please note that not all plows have cameras. Road conditions on major highways can also be viewed through the Road Weather Information System (RWIS), which is also part of 511.
