I-29 OPEN from Grand Forks to Canadian border

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have OPENED I-29 from Grand Forks to the Canadian border. According to South Dakota DOT, I-29 is now open at the North Dakota border.

A Travel Alert is in effect for all of eastern North Dakota due to compacted snow and ice on the roadways. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Jamestown, Valley City, Edgeley, Ellendale, Wahpeton, Fargo, Grand Forks and surrounding areas. A Travel Alert means motorists can travel, but should be aware of winter driving conditions and should slow down.  

The NDDOT is also urging motorists to use caution if traveling in eastern North Dakota because due to current flood conditions this spring, there is extra concern for motorists due to water filled ditches along many roadways. Motorists should slow down and drive for 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. Please be advised that road condition information on 511 and the travel map is updated daily from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. CDT. The road report is based upon the information available to the NDDOT at the time of preparation and is provided solely as a public service. Conditions may vary from those reported.
