No Travel Advised for portions of south central ND

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a No Travel Advisory for portions of south central North Dakota due to near zero visibility and icy road conditions. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are Jamestown, Valley City, Ellendale and surrounding areas. Motorists in these areas should not travel as blowing and drifting snow is creating hazardous driving conditions, especially at bridges or sheltered areas.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for eastern North Dakota due to snow covered and slippery roads and blowing snow creating reduced visibility. Areas included are Fargo, Wahpeton, Grand Forks, Grafton 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 reduce speeds, wear seat belts 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:


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.
