road conditions, accumulating snow and
reduced visibility. Cities included in the Travel Alert are: Williston, Minot, Grand Forks, Valley City,
Jamestown, Fargo, and surrounding areas. Motorists are advised to reduce
speeds as roadways are ice covered.
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.
travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions as weather conditions occur
and use caution while traveling. For road information, call 511 from any type

including holidays. It’s important to remember that the conditions may vary
