Pulling out of the garage in Arden Hills, WCCO Radio rode along with Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) spokesperson Kent Barnard as he started his job as a driver.
A winter storm that is causing huge problems across the Midwest moved into Minnesota Thursday night.
The rain and snow mixed together is causing problems on area roads. The Minnesota Department of Transportation says icy conditions are making travel particularly difficult in southern Minnesota.
Let’s hope the roads are better after Wednesday night’s snowstorm than they were after the last one.
Officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation say that bumpy “wash board” effect on metro roads is caused by a number of factors.
Metro motorists were suddenly and unexpectedly thrown into winter mode on Monday morning. According to the State Patrol, at least 50 spinouts and fender-benders were reported by late Monday morning.
Kent Barnard of MNDOT joins the show to update us on the progress of the local highway construction projects.
