Tough Driving Around the Lakes

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising motorist to use caution while driving in Central Minnesota today, due icy road conditions.

No closures of interstate highways or other roads are anticipated at this time; however, motorists may encounter brief lane closures where crashes occur.

MnDot says motorists should drive slowly on bridges, overpasses and tunnels, use a safe speed for winter driving conditions, regardless of the posted speed limit, keep a safe stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you, keep both hands on the steering wheel, your eyes on the road and your attention on your driving.

Conditions on State Highways are fair.  However, all other roads in the Brainerd Lakes Area are icy and treacherous.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl tells KLKS news, there hadn't been in major accidents reported this morning.  However, he warned drivers to be especially cautious at intersection curves and hills.  Some motorists have become stranded, unable to drive up icy hills.
