North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) has extended the Travel
Alert to include southeastern North Dakota due to snow covered and slippery
roads and blowing snow creating reduced visibility. Areas included are Fargo,
Wahpeton and surrounding areas.
Travel Alert remains in effect for south central and northeastern North
Dakota including the areas of Jamestown, Valley City, Ellendale, Grand Forks,
Grafton and surrounding areas.
A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists
can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing
conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds,
wear seat belts and drive according to the conditions.
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 website: www.dot.nd.gov.
NDDOT works hard to keep travelers informed of road conditions. However, the
road conditions are not reported 24 hours a day but updated every day from 5
a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Time, including holidays. It’s important to remember
that the conditions may vary from what is being reported.
