Motorists are being urged to stay off the roads as more winter weather moves through North Dakota.

The NDDOT and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a No Travel Advisory for most of North Dakota due to blowing and drifting snow causing zero visibility. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory are:

  • Bismarck
  • Williston
  • Minot
  • Watford City
  • Killdeer,
  • Devils Lake
  • Jamestown
  • Valley City and surrounding areas

Conditions are such that motorists in this area should not travel due to blowing and drifting snow causing zero visibility.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for the cities of Grand Forks, Fargo, and surrounding areas due to blowing and drifting snow causing reduced visibility.

The NDDOT defines a No Travel Advisory as:

Motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel. Snowplows may be pulled from the roads during severe conditions. Motorists should take NO TRAVEL ADVISED seriously as those motorists who choose to travel at their own risk may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach them safely. A NO TRAVEL ADVISED has the potential to change to a ROAD CLOSED OR BLOCKED if conditions deteriorate.

All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling.
