Snow is tapering off in the Twin Cities Monday morning, but slick roads made for difficult commute.
Snow continues to fall in some areas south and east of the Twin Cities. Up to 3 inches fell in the metro area, and most of the roads are still covered with snow.
The Minnesota State Patrol and the Department of Transportation reported dozens of freeway incidents since 6:30 a.m. in the Twin Cities, including a tractor-trailer rollover on Highway 8 near the Franconia Sculpture Park that briefly trapped the driver. Highway 8 was expected to be closed for a few hours as crews tried to remove the truck, which was carrying bicycle parts.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office said a school bus slid off the road at Highway 61 and 120th Street in Denmark Township, which is just north of Hastings. No injuries were reported.
Traffic is moving very slowly across the Twin Cities, and MnDOT reported difficult driving conditions throughout the metro area, on roads heading north to Duluth and in southeastern Minnesota. On some highways in the Twin Cities, traffic was moving as slow as 15 mph.
