Travel Alert extended to south central North Dakota

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have extended the Travel Alert to south central North Dakota due to blowing snow, reduced visibility, and scattered snow drifts on the roadways. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Bismarck, Jamestown, Valley City, Ellendale and surrounding areas. Be cautious when approaching bridges and sheltered areas because the blowing snow may create drifts in the driving lanes.

Travel Alerts are also currently in effect for southwestern North Dakota including Dickinson, Bowman, Hettinger and surrounding areas, north central North Dakota including Devils Lake, Minot and surrounding areas and northeastern North Dakota including Grand Forks, Drayton, Pembina 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 wear seat belts, reduce speed, and drive according to the conditions.
