Snowplows Hit the Roads in Southern Valley

Posted: Updated:

Snow plow drivers in the southern valley have started clean-up this Tuesday morning of the early spring snowstorm that has slowed or stopped travel in much of the region.

Fargo and Moorhead city plows have been out since early this morning and, as usual, are starting with primary roads. There is drifting in many side streets and avenues, but many spots are passable.

A deputy at the Cass County tactical operations center set up for this storm says Cass County highway workers hit the roads at 4:30 a.m. and the North Dakota transportation department fired up its gear at 5 a.m. Many roads -- including Interstate 94 from Fargo to Bismarck and I-29 from Brookings, SD, to the Canadian border -- are still closed and he says it will be some time before plows can clear enough snow to re-open the highways.

The Cass County operations center received just one call overnight -- a pregnant woman near Wyndmere, ND, who was trying to figure out a route to a Fargo hospital. The deputy says no roads would be open into Fargo, so she was directed to a hospital in Breckenridge.
