With blowing snow reducing visibility, highway authorities issued a travel alert Thursday morning for much of North Dakota, including Fargo, and temporarily closed part of Interstate 94.

At 5 a.m., authorities shut down I-94 from Jamestown to Valley City because of multiple accidents, but the highway was re-opened in both directions at 8 a.m., the North Dakota Department of Transportation said in a statement.

The northeast, north central, south central and southeast regions are affected by the travel alert, including the cities of Fargo, Minot, Valley City, Jamestown, Ellendale, Edgeley, Wahpeton, Grand Forks, Drayton and Pembina. Under a travel alert, motorists can still drive, but they are advised to slow down and use caution.

Walsh and Bottineau counties have posted no travel advisories, authorities said.

The road conditions around Moorhead are described as difficult, which is one level below hazardous, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

For road information in North Dakota or Minnesota, call 511.
