WILLMAR – As of 9:00AM, The Minnesota Department of Transportation has issued a No Travel Advisory on Highway 14 and all state highways south of Highway 14 in Lincoln, Lyon, Redwood, Pipestone and Murray counties. Strong winds and blowing snow are creating intermittent whiteout conditions and drifts which are quickly backfilled as soon as they are plowed. No travel is advised until conditions improve.

No Travel Advised means that the roadway has deteriorated and/or visibility has been reduced to the point that it is very dangerous to travel; there are reports of whiteout conditions; and some weather conditions can be severe enough that road treatments are not effective, and conditions can become life-threatening for stranded travelers.
