The North Dakota Department of Transportation along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol say plows will be pulled during the evening hours and the I-94 and I-29 closures and No Travel Advisories will remain overnight.

They say snow plow operators have been working since early morning hours, and throughout the day.

The departments say drivers should not use their GPS to get around road closures by using secondary roads that are under a No Travel Advisory as they may be blocked or impassable, especially overnight.

They say plows will be out early Sunday and conditions will be reevaluated at that time.

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 Advisory remains in effect for I-29 from Fargo to the South Dakota Border.

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 people should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel. ​
