CLOSED from Grand Forks to Canadian Border
remains CLOSED from Fargo to Grand Forks, No Travel Advisory in effect
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have now CLOSED I-29 northbound and southbound lanes from Grand Forks to the Canadian Border. I-29 also remains CLOSED from Fargo to Grand Forks due to blowing and drifting snow creating icy road ways, near zero visibility, and life-threatening driving conditions.
A No Travel Advisory remains in effect for northeastern
North Dakota. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory
are Maddock, Carrington, Devils Lake, Grafton, Michigan, Grand Forks,
Hillsboro, and surrounding areas. 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 Travel Alert remains in effect for the remainder of the
state of North Dakota. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Valley City,
Fargo, 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.
