The No Travel Advisory issued for I-29 from Fargo to the Canadian border has been lifted as of 8 a.m. Friday morning, but travel is still considered hazardous. The North Dakota Department of Transportation, along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol, does still have a travel alert in effect for northeastern North Dakota due to icy conditions and water in the ditches.
A wintry mix of snow and freezing rain Thursday night created dangerous driving conditions, and many roads in the region still remain slippery Friday morning.
Cities in the travel alert include Grand Forks Drayton and Pembina.
A travel alert means motorists can still travel in affected areas, but are advised of rapidly changing conditions, and should reduce speeds and drive accordingly.
Because of the current flood conditions this spring, there is extra concern for motorists due to water-filled ditches along many roadways in eastern North Dakota, and motorists are encouraged to down and drive for the conditions.
