US Highway 2 now open

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have opened US Highway 2 eastbound and westbound from Devils Lake to Grand Forks.

Current closures and advisories are:

  • I-94 CLOSED eastbound and westbound from Bismarck to Fargo  
  • A No Travel Advisory is in effect for all areas of south central and eastern North Dakota due to snow drifts, icy roads, and areas of hazardous driving conditions.  Several roadways are blocked and impassible with the greatest impacts to the east-west highways. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory include east of Bismarck, east of Devils Lake, Jamestown, Valley City, Fargo, Grand Forks and surrounding areas. A No Travel Advisory means conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas.

Snowplows are working to clear roadways. Due to the snow drifts there are a number of roads that are blocked and impassable and it will take a significant amount of time to clear roadways. Please be patient as the NDDOT works to clear and open roadways.

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. Please be advised that road condition information on 511 and the travel map is updated daily from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. CDT. The road report is based upon the information available to the NDDOT at the time of preparation and is provided solely as a public service. Conditions may vary from those reported.
