of Williston, Watford City, Crosby, Bowbells, and surrounding areas.
A Travel Alert remains in effect for north central North Dakota including the cities of Minot, Garrison, Towner, Mohall, and surrounding areas due to icy road conditions and accumulating snow.

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. The NDDOT works hard to keep travelers informed of road conditions.

It’s important to remember that the conditions may vary from what is being reported.
