The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have extended the No Travel Advisory to include the cities of Minot, Mohall, Bottineau, Towner, Velva, Harvey and surrounding areas due to snow and blowing snow creating near zero visibility and some areas of compacted snow or ice on roadways.
The No Travel Advisory is still in effect for Crosby, Bowbells, Williston, Stanley, Watford City, New Town and surrounding areas. Conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas.
Also a Travel Alert has been issued for portions of northeast North Dakota including the cities of Rolla, Cando, Rugby, Devils Lake, Carrington and surrounding areas due to snow and blowing snow creating reduced visibility and hazardous driving conditions.
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: http://www.dot.nd.gov/
