The North Dakota Department of Transportation, along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol have extended the travel alert to include southwestern North Dakota including Dickinson and surrounding areas due to icy road conditions and reduced visibility, the NDDoT said in a press release Monday morning.
A travel alert remains in effect for the remainder of the state due to icy road conditions, accumulating snow and reduced visibility. Cities included in the Travel Alert are: Williston, Minot, Bismarck, Valley City, Jamestown, Devils Lake, Fargo, Grand Forks and surrounding areas. Motorists are advised to reduce speeds as roadways are ice covered.
A travel alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.
Additionally, according to a Facebook post from the Stark County Emergency Services, all Stark County offices will be closing at 12 p.m. Mountain time due to weather conditions.
