Stormy conditions are causing traffic problems throughout southwest North Dakota. Two semis jack-knifed on Highway 22 and a car rolled last night near Belfield.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation announced at 8:45 this morning that Highway 22, 20 miles north of Killdeer is now open.

The road was temporarily closed due to a traffic incident. Motorists are advised to continue to use caution as conditions may be hazardous in some areas.

However, Highway 57 south of Devils Lake from the Junction of Highway 20 to Fort Totten is closed until further notice.

Strong winds are creating waves which are washing water over the road and leaving debris, creating hazardous travel conditions. As temperatures drop overnight, the water on the road may freeze and create icy conditions. The condition of the road will be evaluated in the morning.
