Crews work to keep roads open in west central Minnesota


Limited visibility in the western part of the state is causing problems for motorists today, but state roads are being cleared and kept open.

Rumors that some state highways are being closed are false, said Jeff Butson, operations superintendent at the Minnesota Department of Transportation's District 8 office in Willmar.

Butson said he won't consider closing roads unless snow plows are pulled from the roads, and so far that's not happening.
