I-94 OPEN from Fargo to Bismarck and I-29 OPEN Fargo to Grand Forks
March 15, 2019
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) will be opening I-94 at 1 p.m. Motorists must use caution when traveling as I-94 is still covered with areas of ice, compacted snow, and scattered ice and slush. Motorists must slow down and drive for the conditions. Crews are out working and will continue to work on the interstate in addition to two-lane highways which remain blocked and impassable or reduced to a single lane in many places in south central and eastern North Dakota. Please use caution while traveling.
Commercial trucks with oversize loads will be permitted on the interstate only starting at 2 p.m. in the southeast region. No oversize loads will be permitted on secondary two-lane highways in the SE region at this time.
I-29 open from Fargo to Grand Forks
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have opened I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks.
Current closures and advisories are:
- I-94 CLOSED eastbound and westbound from Bismarck to Fargo
- US Highway 2 CLOSED eastbound and westbound from Devils Lake to Grand Forks
- A No Travel Advisory is in effect for all areas of south central and eastern North Dakota due to snow drifts, icy roads, and areas of hazardous driving conditions. Several roadways are blocked and impassible with the greatest impacts to the east-west highways. Cities included in the No Travel Advisory include east of Bismarck, east of Devils Lake, Jamestown, Valley City, Fargo, Grand Forks and surrounding areas. A No Travel Advisory means conditions are such that motorists should not travel in these areas.
Snowplows are working to clear roadways. Due to the snow drifts there are a number of roads that are blocked and impassable and it will take a significant amount of time to clear roadways. Please be patient as the NDDOT works to clear and open roadways.
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 Travel Information Map at www.dot.nd.gov.
Please be advised that road condition information on 511 and the travel map is updated daily from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. CDT.
