NDDT and MnDOT Issues No Travel Advisory

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a No Travel Advisory for the southeast region of North Dakota due to heavy snow and blowing snow causing near zero visibility and creating hazardous driving conditions.

Areas included in the No Travel Advisory are east of Valley City, Lisbon,  Fargo, Wahpeton and surrounding areas. Also, Ellendale, Edgeley, Oakes, Litchville and surrounding areas have been added to the advisory.  

In addition, a Travel Alert has been issued for the areas of Grand Forks, Drayton and Cavalier due to snow causing slippery roads and reduced visibility.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for Jamestown and areas west of Valley City and surrounding areas.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation also advises no travel in west central Minnesota. Increasing winds will likely cause conditions to continue to deteriorate.

The no travel advisory includes Becker, Big Stone, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Mahnomen, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Swift, Traverse and Wilkin counties. Minnesota officials do not anticipate any interstate or highway closures at this time; however, motorists may encounter brief lane and road closures where crashes occur.
