Blowing snow causing problems on local highways

Posted by wlpo on January 22, 2014

Blowing snow was causing whiteout conditions Wednesday evening.  A number of people went off the road on Route 251 between Peru and Mendota.  Avoid that stretch of road if possible.

There were also complaints about visibility on Route 17 between Wenona and south of Streator and Interstate 39.  Roads are also slick.  Slow down and watch out for cars and the people handling the crashes.
