The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) will be opening I-94 at 1 p.m. Motorists must use caution when traveling as I-94 is still covered with areas of ice, compacted snow, and scattered ice and slush. Motorists must slow down and drive for the conditions. Crews are out working and will continue to work on the interstate in addition to two-lane highways which remain blocked and impassable or reduced to a single lane in many places in south central and eastern North Dakota. Please use caution while traveling.
Commercial trucks with oversize loads will be permitted on the interstate only starting at 2 p.m. in the southeast region. No oversize loads will be permitted on secondary two-lane highways in the SE region at this time.
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.
