Travel Alert extended to northeastern North Dakota; Travel Alert issued in southwestern Dakota


The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have extended the Travel Alert to northeastern North Dakota due to blowing snow, reduced visibility, and scattered snow drifts on the roadways. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Grand Forks, Drayton, Pembina and surrounding areas. Be cautious when approaching bridges and sheltered areas because the blowing snow may create drifts in the driving lanes.

Also a Travel Alert has also been issued for the southwestern area of the state due to blowing snow, reduced visibility, and scattered snow drifts on the roadways. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Dickinson, Bowman, Hettinger and surrounding areas.

 

A Travel Alert is still in effect for north central North Dakota including Devils Lake, Minot, and surrounding areas due to blowing snow, reduced visibility, and scattered snow drifts on the roadways. Be cautious when approaching bridges and sheltered areas because the blowing snow may create drifts in the driving lanes.

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 wear seat belts, reduce speed, and drive according to the conditions.
