'No Travel Advisory' extended to areas in northeastern North Dakota

BISMARCK - The North Dakota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have extended the "No Travel Advisory" to include areas in northeastern North Dakota south of U.S. Highway 2 due to freezing rain causing icy road conditions and hazardous travel.

Cities included are Page, Cooperstown, Thompson and surrounding areas. Conditions are such that motorists in these areas should not travel.

The following advisories still in effect:

  • "No Travel Advisory" for areas north of U.S. Highway 2 in northwestern North Dakota including the cities of Crosby, Bowbells and surrounding areas.

  • "No Travel Advisory" for north-central North Dakota including the cities of Minot, Devils Lake and surrounding areas.

  • "Travel Alert" for areas around Williston, Grand Forks, Fargo, Wahpeton, Valley City, Jamestown, Ellendale, Linton, Bismarck and surrounding areas. A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of freezing rain causing icy road conditions.

    All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website: www.dot.nd.gov.
