Blizzard Warning Prompts Travel Alerts for Valley

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have LIFTED the No Travel Advisory for northeastern North Dakota including Grand Forks and surrounding areas.

A Travel Alert remains in effect for the area due to blowing snow creating areas of reduced visibility.

Cities included in the Travel Alert are Devils Lake, Grand Forks, Jamestown, Valley City, Fargo, Wahpeton, and surrounding areas.

A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions.

Meantime the Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed US Highway 2 from East Grand Forks to Crookston.  There are warnings of white out conditions and drifting snow on the roadway.

Several other roads in Northwest Minnesota are listed as "Hazardous."
