Roads in Mn/DOT's northwest district 2 that are currently closed are:

Highway 2 from Crookston to East Grand Forks;

Highway 200 from Ada to Highway 75.

These roads will remain closed until further notice.

Mn/DOT snow plow operators are out in force and will continue to do their part to make highways safe.

If you must travel, Mn/DOT reminds motorists to follow safe winter driving practices. Motorists should:

Plan ahead - give yourself extra time to travel.

Clear snow and ice from vehicle windows, hood, headlights, brake lights and directional signals.

Drive slowly - lower speeds help drivers avoid crashes and minimize those that occur.

Keep a safe stopping distance between vehicles. Leave extra room between your vehicle and snowplows or other removal equipment.

Always use seat belts.

Adjust speed to road and weather conditions.

Avoid using cruise control.

Turn on headlights when it is sleeting or snowing.
