Hwy 210 now closed between Fergus Falls and Breckenridge

Blowing snow creates hazardous driving conditions

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (9:30 a.m.)—The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol have now closed Hwy 210 between Fergus Falls and Breckenridge. The following state and federal highways in west central Minnesota remain closed:

  • I-94 between Moorhead and Fergus Falls
  • Hwy 10 from Moorhead to Detroit Lakes
  • Hwy 75 from Perley to Wolverton
  • Hwy 9 from Borup to Barnesville
  • Hwy 32 from north of Ulen to Hwy 34
  • Hwy 34 from I-94 to Dunvilla
  • Hwy 108 from I-94 to Pelican Rapids
  • Hwy 210 from Fergus Falls to Breckenridge

High winds and blowing snow have created dangerous whiteout conditions, and roads are icy and snow-covered. The highways are closed due to multiple vehicles blocking the roadway. They will remain closed until driving conditions improve.

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.

No travel advisory remains in effect for other state highways in Becker, Douglas, Grant, Mahnomen, Otter Tail, Wilkin and portions of Traverse County.
