The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a Travel Alert for portions of south central North Dakota due to blowing snow creating reduced visibility and areas of drifting snow on the roadways. The Travel Alert includes the cities of Jamestown, Valley City, Ellendale, Ashley 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.
There is still a NO TRAVEL ADVISORY in effect for ND Highways 1804 and 37 from White Shield near the Junction of ND 28 to the northwest near Parshall due to blowing and drifting snow causing areas of near zero visibility.
Motorists should be aware that travel conditions can change quickly and create hazardous driving conditions and roads could become blocked, especially at bridges or sheltered areas. A No Travel Advised means that motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel.
