It's the story of drastically different weather conditions along one Minnesota highway.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced Friday crews had reopened Highway 75 south of Interstate 90 near Luverne after it was temporarily flooded.

The highway remained closed, however, north of I-90 to Trotsky, according to MnDOT.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota State Patrol reported MnDOT crews had reduced Highway 75 down to one lane a couple miles south of Crookston due to large snow drifts.

Crews were also working to create a drainage path for eventual water from the melting snow along the highway in that area.
