Travel Alert Still in Effect for Southwestern North Dakota

News

The North Dakota Department of Transportation and Highway Patrol say the southwestern portion of the state is still under a Travel Alert, since about 11:00 this morning.

Snow started late last night in and around Dickinson. The snow is blowing and creating slippery road conditions, and reduced visibility for drivers. 

Cities included in the Travel Alert are Beach, Dickinson, Richardton and the surrounding areas. 

A Travel Alert means you can still travel in these areas but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions. 

Highway Patrol asks drivers to slow down and drive according to the conditions.

Since this morning, there were an estimated at least seven crashes in southwestern North Dakota, and 12 to 15 cars ended up driving off the road, into ditches.

Snow plow crews are working hard to clear the roads, but Highway Patrol told KX News, it will take longer than in the winter because they don’t keep a full staff in May.
