Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road due to life threatening conditions. The road may be impassible or blocked. Motorists who drive past a road closure device may be fined up to $250.

Motorists should slow down and drive according to conditions as there are still many areas in the state with snow drifts blocking roads and areas of low visibility. Poor visibility continues to affect highways in North Dakota. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Please be advised that road condition information on 511 and the travel map is updated daily from 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. CDT.
