The North Dakota Department of
Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have
issued a Travel Alert for Grand Forks and surrounding areas due to
strong winds and blowing snow which is creating
reduced visibility and creating hazardous driving conditions. Cities included
in the Travel Alert are Grand Forks, Drayton, Grafton,
Cavalier, Michigan, Cooperstown 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, drive according to the conditions and always wear your seat belt. All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling.
