Parts of Interstate 29 and 94 now open
Interstate 94 from Jamestown to Fargo and Interstate 29 from Fargo to Grand Forks is now open, according to an 8 a.m. announcement from the North Dakota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
Motorists will need to drive for conditions and proceed with caution due to compacted ice and snow still present on the roadway, the announcement said.
Road closures that continue into the morning are Interstate 29 from the Canadian border to Grand Forks, and from Fargo to the South Dakota border. North Dakota Highway 13 is also closed from Interstate 29 to Wahpeton.
A no travel advisory remains in effect for portions of south central and eastern North Dakota, due to snow and blowing snow creating near zero visibility and hazardous driving conditions. The no travel advisory was lifted at 9 a.m. for Edgeley, Ellendale, Ashley and surrounding areas. A no travel advisory remains in effect for Lisbon, Wahpeton and surrounding areas at this time due to hazardous driving conditions.
A no travel advisory means conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas. Motorists are also encouraged to use caution if planning to travel this week in eastern North Dakota because of current flood conditions and the potential for water filled ditches.
