The wind presently occurring after last night’s snowfall is creating some special challenges for road crews according to Chase Fester with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

 

“As you apply chemical to the icy road and as the snow gets blown across the road the snow is going to stick to those wet spots,” said Fester. “It definitely adds some time to the process of clearing things.”
