April Snow Brings Slick Roads
We have been getting bursts of snow showers around the Faribault area and to the north, and even more so in areas north of the Twin Cities. The Minnesota State Patrol has reported numerous accidents in that area. The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reporting crashes at Interstate 94 and Interstate 694, at Interstate 35 and Minnesota Highway 13 in Burnsville, and and northbound Minnesota Highway 77 at Minnesota Highway 62 in Richfield.
Be sure to slow down and turn on your lights. Turning your lights on while there is rain or snow coming down is the law in Minnesota. And don't just rely on your daytime running lamps. That only turns on your headlamps in some cases. That does not turn on your rear lights so that people behind you can see you.
Snow showers are in the forecast off and on through the rest of the day.
You can get road information by dialing 511 on your phone or go to 511mn.org.
