FERGUS FALLS, Minn. — Minnesota transportation officials have opened eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 in west central Minnesota.

The westbound lanes are still closed.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol closed the approximate 50-mile stretch early Friday because of some jackknifed semis. Freezing rain was making roads slippery in that region.
