Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – The Minnesota Department of Transportation has lifted its ‘no travel’ advisory in southeast Minnesota.

But motorists are being advised that travel speeds are slow in some areas due to drifting and snow compaction on state highways.

MnDOT says its 101 snowplows in southeast Minnesota worked through the night to keep the roads open.

MnDot says as of 7:30 a.m., travel speeds on highways were about 35 mph, but motorists should be alert for icy patches and compacted snow.

MnDOT snowplows will be working to widen the travel lanes past the shoulders through the day, but more snow is expected and strong winds are expected to cause blowing and drifting snow into Friday evening and early Saturday.
