No Travel Advised extended to portions of North Dakota

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a No Travel Advisory for portions of North Dakota due to icy road conditions, near zero visibility and accumulating snow. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are Dickinson, Jamestown, Devils Lake, and surrounding areas. A No Travel Advisory means conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas.

A No Travel Advisory is still in effect in portions of northwest, central and southeast North Dakota including: Williston, Watford City, Crosby, Bowbells, Stanley, Minot, Parshall, Garrison, Harvey, Bismarck, Underwood, Steele, Linton, Wishek, Ashley, Edgeley, Oakes and surrounding areas due to icy road conditions, near zero visibility and accumulating snow.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for the remainder of the state due to icy road conditions and reduced visibility. Cities included in the Travel Alert are: Fargo, Grand Forks and surrounding areas. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds, wear seat belts and drive according to the conditions.  

 Additional snowfall and continued strong winds are likely to make travel hazardous for the rest of the night and possibly tomorrow.

Motorists should also be aware that travel conditions can change quickly and blowing and drifting snow with heavy accumulation throughout the night will continue to create hazardous driving conditions and roads could become blocked, especially at bridges or sheltered areas.

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  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.
