The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT)
along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a Travel Alert
for portions of eastern North Dakota due to snow/slush covered roads
creating icy road conditions. Cities included in the Travel Alert are
Valley City, Cooperstown, Edgeley 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 website: www.dot.nd.gov.
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.
