According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's website (511) a portion of I35 closed just before 3:30PM this afternoon. The site states the I35 from exit 41 or Bridge Street in Owatonna to exit 56 or MN 60 or Morristown Boulevard is now closed. This is due not only to the weather/road conditions but also multiple mishaps have occured as well. Again, no travel is advised in southern Minnesota for the rest of today. The Owatonna Armory is open for stranded motorists.
