After a winter storm blasted the region Sunday the clean-out is still underway in the area.
Osakis schools are closed today.
Interstate 94 was closed from Alexandria to Moorhead for 20 hours. At 1 p.m. today (Monday, February 11), the interstate was re-opened.
Driving conditions are still difficult with scattered icy sections, drifting snow due to strong winds and compacted areas of snow on roads.
MnDOT reminds motorists to be patient while snowplow operators work to improve driving conditions. The majority of snowplow crashes take place during “clean up” when motorists resume their normal speeds.Heavy blowing and drifting snow are reducing visibility.
