Minnesota Governor Tim Walz called on the public to share their #MNPotholes photos and stories on social media as part of an awareness campaign about the issue. Here are some of the highlights that have been shared.
Thursday's snow has led to ongoing travel issues around the Northland, with many area roads slippery and snow-covered. Travel is not being advised due to road conditions and to allow crews to clear roads.
On top of the winter-like weather expect through the Northland into Thursday afternoon, there is also a Flood Advisory for much of the area into Friday morning. With existing snow melting, St. Louis County had to close even more roads due to flooding.
Just about every time we have snowy and windy conditions here in the Twin Ports, someone inevitably blurts out, "they are going to close the bridges!" And all of us who work across the bridge (Duluth or Superior side) start to panic we won't make it home. The frustrating part of this whole situation is that 99% of the time, the bridges don't close, but misinformation is spread anyway
