The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) offers a free email and/or cell phone text subscription service to enable people to receive notifications on topics of interest. 

The tool is GovDelivery, a web-based email subscription management system that allows you to subscribe to news and information updates on the NDDOT website. Whenever information is updated on an NDDOT webpage you have subscribed to, you will receive an email and/or mobile alert. You can customize and manage your subscription profile to receive exactly the types of information you desire, and you may cancel your subscriptions at any time. 

Subscribers will receive an email when information on topics selected have been updated. Subscribers may also choose to have notifications sent to their cell phones as a text message. This is offered as a free public service, though message and data rates may apply. 

 Subscribe or update your GovDelivery preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a “profile," and why do I need to create one?

A profile contains your email address, an optional password, and the selections for which you wish to receive email updates. You can also add a secondary email if you wish to receive notifications to another account.

How can I change or reset my email address or password?

At the bottom of each email you receive is a link called "Manage Preferences." You can change your email address by clicking on the link in that section called "Manage Your Subscriptions or Unsubscribe."

If you choose to set up a password, but forget or want to change it, you can use the “Forgot your Password?” section to have a reset email sent to your address. The email will contain a link allowing you to set a new password.

Do I need any special software to subscribe and/or receive updates?

Updates will be delivered via email, so a valid email address is required. Most updates also include a link to a webpage, so a web browser is also needed.

How often will I receive email notices? How often will I receive mobile notices if I choose that option?

You will receive email notices whenever information has been updated on the webpage(s) to which you subscribe. If you want to receive a notice immediately when information is updated on any of the pages in your profile, you should select “Send immediately” under the “Change Email Frequency Preference” option. If you prefer to receive fewer email notices, you may select one of the delivery preference options to receive the notices from all of your subscriptions in one daily, weekly, or monthly transmission.

Mobile notifications are always sent immediately. Emergency notifications will be sent immediately, regardless of your frequency preferences.

I subscribed to receive email alerts, but I haven’t gotten any yet. Why not?

You should receive a “New Subscriber” email as soon as you subscribe for each item you select. To ensure that you receive your subscription emails, you may need to adjust your spam settings, or follow the instructions from your email provider on how to prevent our emails from being marked "spam" or "junk mail." If you received the “New Subscriber” email, but have not received anything further, the item(s) you selected may not have been updated recently.

I wish to opt-out/discontinue receiving text messages from NDDOT. How do I do this?

The following are options to opt-out/discontinue receiving text messages from NDDOT. Text STOP from your mobile device to GOV311 (468311). You will receive a confirmation text message and you will not receive any additional text messages from NDDOT unless you choose to opt-in again.

OR enter your phone number on the "Email/Text Message Updates" webpage to view the topics you have selected. Access your subscriber preferences to delete currently selected topics or delete your account.

I want to receive updates on road conditions. What option(s) should I select?

The following are options to choose road condition information.

  • The "Messages" option will send you updates when the NDDOT issues Travel Alerts, No Travel Advisories, Road Closures and other important information which may affect your travels.
  • The “Road Condition by Highway” option will allow you to choose the specific highway in which you wish to receive condition updates on.

Remember, you are able to change your preferences at any time if you find you are not receiving the type of information you wish to receive.
