Another Slick Morning Commute In Southeast Minnesota
Undated (KROC-AM News)- Morning commuters are dealing with a third straight morning of slippery roads.
The National Weather Service says the majority of roads in the region are either partially covered or fully covered with snow and ice. MnDOT’s 511 website shows plows are out clearing and treating major roads throughout the region.
An overnight snowfall created the slick conditions that have produced at least two crashes in the Rochester area. One crash occurred on an icy Hwy. 14 between Stockton and Winona and another happened on I-90 in Winona County near the Minnesota-Wisconsin state line.
No word yet if any of the crashes involved injuries. Officials advise drivers to slow down, increase following and stopping distance and watch for slick spots on bridge decks. Snowplows are out clearing and treating roads throughout the region.
