I-94 Shuts Down From Alexandria To ND Border
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (AP) – Interstate 94 has closed again between Alexandria and the North Dakota border as winds pick up, cutting visibility.
U.S. Highway 10 between Moorhead and Detroit Lakes also has closed again. Both stretches had reopened earlier Friday after being closed Thursday evening.
Highway 210 from Fergus Falls to the North Dakota border, and Highway 28 from Browns Valley to Westport, also is closed.
Minnesota State Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grabow says instead of heading out for New Year’s, people should instead “break out the board games and enjoy that family time.”
KSAX-TV says weather is expected to worsen in the region. The National Weather Service says the Alexandria area can expect 7 to 9 inches of snow by early Saturday morning, with temperatures ranging from minus-5 to 10 degrees.
