Slippery Roads in the Brainerd Area

The Brainerd Lakes Area dodged a wintry blast Wednesday.  Predictions of up to 5 inches of snow did not materialize.  Some two to three inches of snow whitened the area.   International Falls got the most snow registering 8.5 inches.

Tom Wyrk, MnDot Maintenance Supervisor for the Brainerd Area, tells KLKS News, they were expecting something much worse.  Still, he describes the roads as slippery.

Wyrk says the trucks are spreading some alternative chemicals designed to melt ice when temperatures are around zero.  He is urging drivers to slowdown and give the snow plows plenty of room.

Traveling conditions are described as difficult to the north and south of the Brainerd district.
