Ice blown off of Mille Lacs Lake by high winds blocked part of Highway 169 in Crow Wing County on Sunday morning.

A crew used heavy equipment to remove the ice on the road, which was near Garrison. The ice blocked the road for more than an hour. Traffic was back up and people had to turn around and look for another way to get to their destination.
