Motorists to use caution as winter storm and flooded ditches could impact travelers

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) is urging motorists to use caution if planning to travel this week in eastern North Dakota as the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for portions of the state. Because of the current flood conditions this spring, there is extra concern for motorists due to water filled ditches along many roadways in eastern North Dakota. Motorists should slow down and drive for the conditions if road conditions deteriorate.

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.
