Just how much work goes into opening an interstate after a blizzard strikes? Thanks to the Iowa State Patrol, KIMT was able to ride along and fly its drone as crews cleared Interstate-35 north of Clear Lake on Monday.
The southbound lane re-opened around noon Monday south of the Minnesota border after being closed for many hours.
