Dangerous driving conditions prompt travel alerts in valley

(Valley News Live) There are a number of travel alerts this Monday morning because of dangerous driving conditions.

Fargo's 19th Avenue North shut down around 6 a.m. from 18th Street to Dakota Drive. The Valley Today's traffic reporter Al Aamodt says blowing snow and icy surfaces are making for terrible travel in that area.

He also says Highway 10 into Minnesota and 336 between Highway 10 and Interstate 94 in Clay County are in rough shape.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation issued a "no travel" advisory this morning for Kittson, Marshall, Norman and Polk Counties because of zero visibility and drifting snow.

Earlier overnight, the Pembina County, ND, sheriff's office issued a "no travel" advisory for that area because of similar poor driving conditions.
