Additionally, Old 61 and Becks Road were shut down between Midway and Old 61.

These closures were due to fallen power lines.

In a statement on Facebook, Minnesota Power said crews reported a number of hanging wires due to ice and heavy snow.

Minnesota Power asks that people do not touch or lift any wires or get out of their vehicles to go near them. According to Minnesota Power, all wires should be considered energized and dangerous. 

To report fallen lines, the public can call 800-228-4966.
