The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol closed three highways at 11 p.m. Sunday due to heavy snow, high winds and low visibility. As of 10:30 a.m. Monday the highways remained closed, according to the MnDOT website.

Highways closed include:

All three highways will remain closed until further notice. In addition, no travel is advised on all highways in west central Minnesota.

Motorists should plan accordingly. When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or sentenced to 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
