I-29 from Fargo to the Canadian Border OPEN; No Travel Advisory still in effect for northeastern North Dakota

The North Dakota Department of Transportation and Highway Patrol have OPENED I-29 from Fargo to the Canadian Border. Motorists should be aware that conditions such as high winds, reduced visibility and blowing snow may cause hazardous travel. A No Travel Advisory remains in effect for northeastern North Dakota. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are: Grafton, Michigan, Grand Forks, Hillsboro, and surrounding areas. Motorists are advised not to travel until later in the day when conditions are expected to improve as the high winds diminish.

All Travel Alerts in other areas of the state have been LIFTED.

The District Office in Grand Forks including the Drivers License Office located at 1951 N. Washington street is closed today but some services are available online at dot.nd.gov.

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 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.
