The North Dakota Department of Transportation and North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a No Travel Advisory for the north central region of the state due snow and blowing snow which is creating reduced visibility, icy roads and hazardous driving conditions. The No Travel Advisory is for Minot, Bowbells, Stanley, Bottineau, Towner, Parshall, Rugby, Rolla and surrounding areas.
A No Travel Advised means conditions are such that motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel. Snowplows may be pulled from the roads during severe conditions. Motorists should take NO TRAVEL ADVISED seriously as those motorists who choose to travel at their own risk may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach them safely. A NO TRAVEL ADVISED has the potential to change to a ROAD CLOSED OR BLOCKED if 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.
