Oh, say it ain't snow: Snowstorm prediction resets spring roadwork for west central Minnesota


WILLMAR — The front blades, side wings and sanders had already been removed from a couple of the trucks in the fleet of vehicles for the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s District 8, headquartered in Willmar.

After all, crews had been out last week doing spring maintenance work on guardrails. But after hearing the snowy forecast for west central Minnesota, crews brought the vehicles back into the shop on Monday to refit them for another round of snow removal duty.
