I-29 now OPEN from Fargo to Canadian Border

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have OPENED I-29 from Fargo to the Canadian border. Motorists should be aware that hazardous driving conditions exist and No Travel is Advised in the area. Because of heavy rains this fall there is extra concern for motorists due to water filled ditches along I-29 and other roadways in central and eastern North Dakota.  

As a reminder, the following closures and advisories are currently in place:

  • US 2 CLOSED from Rugby to Grand Forks International Airport.
  • I-94 CLOSED from Bismarck to Fargo.
  • In the north central portion of the state, in and around Devils Lake, secondary state highways are IMPASSABLE and BLOCKED. Motorists SHOULD NOT TRAVEL!
  • A No Travel Advisory remains in place for eastern areas of the state including Bismarck, Minot, Jamestown, Valley City, Fargo, Casselton, Devils Lake, Grand Forks, and surrounding areas.
  • A Travel Alert is still in effect for areas in southeastern North Dakota including Wahpeton and surrounding areas.

 Please be aware that Commercial Truck Parking is becoming limited in Mandan due to the I-94 closure from Bismarck to Fargo. Commercial trucks should consider stopping in Dickinson.

Please be advised that road condition information on 511 and the Travel Information Map at www.dot.nd.gov 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.
