The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) has issued a Travel Alert for the southeast region of North Dakota including the cities of Jamestown, Valley City, Fargo, Wahpeton, Lisbon, Edgeley, Ellendale and surrounding areas due to bands of heavy snow creating snow covered roadways, icy conditions and reduced visibility.

Conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised that conditions could change rapidly in the evening hours. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.
