The North Dakota Department of
Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have
issued a Travel Alert for northeast North Dakota due to rain
and snow causing icy conditions on the roadway. The Travel Alert includes
the cities of Grand Forks, Devils Lake, Carrington Langdon, and Grafton.
A Travel Alert means that motorists can still travel but may encounter areas of challenging winter weather driving conditions on roadways. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination and be alert to conditions that may make travel difficult, change rapidly, or cause travel delays.
Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds,
drive according to the conditions and always wear your seat belt. 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.
