The North Dakota Department of
Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have
issued a Travel Alert for north central and northeastern North Dakota
due to snow and blowing snow causing reduced visibility. Areas included in the Travel
Alert are Minot, Devils Lake, Grand Forks 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 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 Travel Information
Map at www.dot.nd.gov.
The 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.
