MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The roads shouldn’t be as miserable around the Twin Cities as they were during Friday’s awful commute, but Monday may still bring with it a number of headaches.

The good news is that most road conditions are better, but there are still some problem areas.

On Friday, the Cities saw snow packed on top of ice, cars spinning out, semis getting stuck.

Minnesota State Patrol troopers ended up handling nearly 1,200 crashes, 2,500 vehicles going off the road, and 75 jackknifed semi-trucks.

But the Minnesota Department of Transportation says the roads are now in fair condition. MnDOT says we could have all dry roads by this afternoon, thanks to hard work, chemicals, and Mother Nature.

Still, you will want to be especially careful on ramps and under bridges.
