FARGO — After closing overnight Friday and into Saturday afternoon, interstates in North Dakota have reopened, transportation officials said around 1 p.m. Saturday.

Despite the reopening roads, travel is still dangerous.

"Much of the state remains under a Travel Alert and motorists can expect icy road conditions when traveling. Please slow down and drive according to the conditions," a release from the North Dakota Department of Transportation said.

Blowing snow, icy roads and near-zero visibility kept parts of Interstate 29 and Interstate 94 closed, as well as parts of U.S. Highways 2 and 52, until Saturday morning and afternoon.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
