Westbound Interstate 94 closed near Downer due to jackknifed semi

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (10:30 a.m.)—Westbound Interstate 94 is temporarily closed east of Moorhead due to a jackknifed semi at mile marker 7.  Motorists should use Exit 15 near Downer and follow the signed interstate alternate routes.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down and travel with caution. Conditions are slippery across the region due to blowing snow and wind, making it challenging for snow plow operators to apply materials that can help with traction.
