As the cleanup from the weekend’s snowstorm continues, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds motorists to drive according to conditions. Heavy snow compaction and ice are continuing to make travel difficult in some locations, and Mn/DOT urges drivers to be patient. Cold temperatures throughout the region are making it difficult for crews to remove the compacted snow and ice, as salt brine is needed to break the bonds between the ice and the road surface. Salt works best when temperatures are above 15 degrees. For updated information on road conditions, you can call 511 or visit the website www.511mn.org.
