Road Crews Staying Busy Through the Storm

Posted: Updated:

The storm is wreaking havoc on the roads.

No travel is advised for southeast North Dakota and west central Minnesota. There are several impassable and closed roads.

Interstate 94 from Jamestown to Alexandria is closed.

Highway 10 from Moorhead to Audubon and Highway 210 from Breckenridge to Fergus Falls is closed.

Highway 2 from near East Grand Forks to Crookston is closed.

Interstate 29 is closed from Grand forks to Watertown, South Dakota.

There is also no travel is advised in and around the Fargo-Moorhead area.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will continue to work on the interstates in the F-M area. All other plows will be pulled. Weather permitting they will get to other areas.   

MNDOT says crews will be on the road until they cannot see. If it gets to that point, they will be pulled and sent back out early Monday morning once the snow and wind die down.

In town, Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo are all focusing on the snow emergency routes.

When possible, they will start to get into residential areas, but they say be patient.

Fargo has 30 pieces of equipment including plows, sand and de-icing trucks out. Crews cover 1,800 miles of lanes in town. Thirty-five workers are plowing the roads.

NDDOT and MNDOT say there are no guesses on when interstates and highways will open again.
