Maple Grove Director of Public Works Ken Ashfeld: "Due to the conditions in which the snow fell, under heavy traffic and then plummeting temperatures, we have ice conditions whereby the actions of deicing agents had little effect during Monday."
Two days after most of the Twin Cities area, including Maple Grove, received more than 10 inches of snow, traveling the roadways remained complicated in spots. The Minnesota Department of Transportation addressed the road conditions in a Dec. 11, 2012 statement on the Minnesota Department of Transportation Facebook page: MnDOT continues addressing the compacted snow and icy conditions on highways and interstates—particularly in southwestern/west central Minnesota and the Twin Cities Metro area.

Temps will warm over the next couple days, which will make the salt compounds we’ve been putting on the roads MUCH more effective. …
