Travel Alert issued for portions of northeast ND

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a Travel Alert for portions of northeastern North Dakota due to icy road conditions. Cities included in the Travel Alert are Grand Forks, Drayton, Lakota, Cooperstown 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 should use caution when driving throughout the night as wet roads will continue to change over to ice as temperatures drop. 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 website: 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.
