Published 9:51am Monday, February 17, 2014

The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises no unnecessary travel in southeastern Minnesota because of difficult driving conditions with blowing snow and reduced visibility.

Blowing snow, icy conditions and reduced visibility are making travel difficult through most of the region.

The advisory is for Rice, Steele, Dodge, Mower, Freeborn, Goodhue, Olmsted, Fillmore, Houston, Winona and Wabasha counties.

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