Tom Berg reports on the road conditions on Interstate 29 and surrounding areas in the northern Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota. He advises commuters to give themselves extra time due to the winter weather conditions. As of 4 a.m., the roads were basically one lane plowed, and the road conditions map showed ice, slush, and snow-covered roads up and down the valley. Crews were hard at work getting the main thoroughfares cleared, but the side streets were still thick with snow and slippery. On the Minnesota side, plows were just starting to get out at 5 a.m. with heavy snow cover in one lane and ruts pulling cars into the ditch. The Minnesota DOT road map showed that all of Northwest Minnesota had snow-covered or snow and ice-covered roads. Carlson advises drivers to give themselves more time as it will take some time before roads get cleared off, especially the secondary highways.
