BISMARCK — North Dakota transportation officials have reopened Interstate 94 across the state, as well as North Dakota Highway 46 from Streeter to U.S. Highway 281.

However, no-travel advisories are in place "due to near-zero visibility, icy road conditions, and scattered snow drifts. Motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions," the North Dakota Department of Transportation said in a statement.

The NDDOT warned that secondary roads could become impassable due to snow drifts on highways.

"Snow drifts are more prevalent at structures and sheltered areas. Vehicles may become stranded and emergency responders may not be able to reach you safely," NDDOT said.


State authorities in Minnesota issued no-travel advisories for parts of west-central Minnesota Friday afternoon, including state Highway 210 from Breckenridge to Fergus Falls.

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.
