UNDATED – The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising no unnecessary travel in western Stearns County, and surrounding areas, due to blowing snow, drifting, and reduced visibility.

You are being asked to avoid Highway 71 south of Interstate 94 between Sauk Centre and Belgrade, Highway 4 between Interstate 94 and Highway 55, and Highway 28 near Grey Eagle and Sauk Centre.  All three roads have areas with snow drifts up to 7 feet high, and areas where the road is reduced to a single lane.

If you must travel, expect to encounter narrow roads, drifting, and scattered slippery spots in Wright, Stearns, Sherburne and Benton counties.

MNDOT closed I-94 from Moorhead to Alexandria at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.  They reopened the road at 7:00 a.m. today (Monday).

Highway 10 from Detroit Lakes to Moorhead, and Hwy 210 from Fergus Falls to Breckenridge have also reopened.

Meanwhile, Highway 15 was closed from St. Cloud to Kimball from about 1:50 p.m. yesterday (Sunday), due to a six car pileup and white-out conditions. It was a chain-reaction type crash. The State Patrol says there were no major injuries.

For the latest road conditions, call MnDOT at 511, or check out their website at
