ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrol says the southbound lanes of Interstate 35 between Albert Lea and the Iowa border have reopened.
That section of the interstate had been closed since Thursday about 2 p.m. because of multiple accidents and the request of the Iowa Department of Transportation.
In Iowa, I-35 from the Minnesota border to Ames has also reopened.
The Department of Transportation says driving conditions in southeastern Minnesota are fair, but motorists should still use extreme caution when traveling.
