Dickinson has been issued a travel alert. In addition much of the area has been issued a no travel advisory.

A No Travel Advisory has been issued for the following counties due to blowing snow, icy road conditions and near zero visibility:

  • Divide County
  • Grant County
  • Billings County
  • Wells County
  • Logan County
  • Dunn County
  • McIntosh County 
  • Williams County
  • Ward County
  • Mountrail County
  • Burke County
  • Foster County
  • Rolette County 
  • Pierce County
  • Bottineau County
  • Morton County

During a no travel advised the NDDOT says, motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions which may make it unsafe to travel. Snow plows may be pulled from the roads during severe conditions. Motorists should take "no travel advised" seriously as those motorists who choose to travel at their own risk may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach them safely. A "no travel advised" has the potential to change to a road closed or blocked if conditions deteriorate.
Travel Alert remains in effect for portions of northwest North Dakota including the cities of Dickinson, Williston, Tioga, Stanley, Bowbells, and surrounding areas and south central North Dakota including Bismarck, Mandan, Flasher, Linton and surrounding areas due to areas of compacted snow and ice on the roadways.

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.
