The North Dakota Department of Transportation along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol have opened northbound and southbound lanes of I-29 from Fargo to the South Dakota Border. They have also opened eastbound and westbound lanes of ND HWY 13 from I-29 to Wahpeton. However, a No Travel Advisory remains in effect due to strong winds causing blowing and drifting snow, areas of zero visibility and hazardous driving conditions.

They say blowing snow is causing snow drifts at underpasses and sheltered areas. They also say crews are trying to keep roads clear but I-29 may be reduced to a single lane in areas due to snow drifts, and drifting may be worse overnight.

Other travel advisories from the NDDOT and NDHP:

I-29 northbound and southbound lanes from Grand Forks to Fargo remain closed.

I-94 westbound and eastbound lanes from Bismarck to Fargo remain closed.

Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road.

A No Travel Advised remains in effect for eastern North Dakota, which includes Jamestown, Valley City, Devils Lake, Fargo, Wahpeton, Grand Forks, and surrounding areas. They say motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions.
