JAMESTOWN – Interstate 94 and roads in the rural areas are very slippery and nasty with reduced visibility, according to Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser.

“West of town, the interstate is very icy,” he said. “With the wind coming and the little bit of snow we got this morning, it is drifting and making the surface very slick.”

Kaiser said the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office has been dealing with accidents on I-94 and U.S. Highway 52/281 by Pingree. He said road conditions contributed to the accidents.

The National Weather Service in Bismarck issued a winter weather advisory that remains in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17. The advisory says to plan on slippery road conditions and widespread blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
