Advisory LIFTED in Devils Lake area – Travel Alert in effect
from Fargo to Canadian Border, No Travel Advisory in effect for northeastern ND
The NO Travel Advisory has been LIFTED in the Devils Lake area and a Travel Alert is now in effect for Devils Lake, Maddock, Carrington and surrounding areas. I-29 northbound and southbound lanes are CLOSED from Fargo to the Canadian Border due to blowing and drifting snow creating icy road ways, near zero visibility, and life-threatening driving conditions.
A No Travel Advisory remains in effect for northeastern
North Dakota. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are Grafton,
Michigan, Grand Forks, Hillsboro, and surrounding areas. Motorists should
not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel.
Snowplows may be pulled from the roads during severe conditions. Motorists
should take NO TRAVEL ADVISED seriously as those motorists who choose to travel
at their own risk may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able
to reach them safely.
A Travel Alert remains in effect for portions of Central
and Eastern North Dakota. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Devils Lake,
Valley City, Fargo, and surrounding areas. A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists can still
travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing
conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and
drive according to the conditions.
All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions
as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling. For road
information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the Travel Information
Map at www.dot.nd.gov.
The NDDOT works
hard to keep travelers informed of road conditions. However, the road
conditions are not reported 24 hours a day but updated every day from 5 a.m. to
10 p.m. Central Time, including holidays. It’s important to remember that the
conditions may vary from what is being reported.
