Alert issued for northwestern North Dakota
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a Travel Alert for northwestern North Dakota due to snow and icy conditions causing hazardous driving conditions. These conditions are expected to continue through the overnight hours. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Williston, Watford City, Crosby, Bowbells, Minot, Bottineau, Towner, 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 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 Travel
Information Map at www.dot.nd.gov. 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.
