BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have closed US Highway 52 from Jamestown to the Canadian border, US Highway 2 from Williston to Devils Lake, US Highway 83 from Washburn to the Canadian border, and US Highway 85 from Williston to Belfield until further notice due to blowing snow and near-zero visibility. Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road due to life-threatening conditions.
Due to the rapidly changing road conditions and extreme winter weather, additional road closures are expected.
Motorists should not use their GPS to access secondary roads to avoid road closures. Motorists should be warned that secondary roads could become blocked or impassable due to the significant snowfall and high winds creating severe snow drifts on the highways. Snow drifts are more prevalent at structures and sheltered areas. Vehicles may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach you safely.
