UPDATE: Some Highways Reopen in Western Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – State transportation officials are opening some western Minnesota highways that were closed due to the snow storm.
Highway 10 between Moorhead and Audubon reopened Monday, as well as Highway 210 between Fergus Falls and Breckenridge. Interstate 94 between Alexandria and Moorhead remains closed as crews work to remove semis that slipped off the road.
The State Patrol handled 326 crashes since Sunday morning, including 42 that involved injuries.
The National Weather Service says Glenwood in Pope County got 12 inches of snow Sunday. Walker has about 11 inches and Hillman has 10 inches. The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported early Monday that most roadways in the state present difficult driving conditions.
