I-94 from Jamestown to Fargo OPEN; I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks OPEN

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have opened I-94 from Jamestown to Fargo and I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks. Motorists will need to drive for conditions and proceed with caution due to compacted ice and snow still present on the roadway.

A No Travel Advisory is still in effect for portions of southcentral and eastern North Dakota due to snow and blowing snow which is creating near zero visibility and hazardous driving conditions. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are Lisbon, Edgeley, Ellendale, Ashley, Wahpeton and surrounding areas.

A No Travel Advisory means conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas.

Road Closures currently in place: 

  • I-29 CLOSED from the Canadian Border to Grand Forks
  • I-29 CLOSED from Fargo to the South Dakota Border.
  • ND Highway 13 CLOSED from I-29 to Wahpeton  

The NDDOT is also  urging motorists to use caution if planning to travel this week in eastern North Dakota because due to 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.
