North Dakota highways reopen after blizzard closures

"Roads may be icy, and snow removal equipment will be present on roadways through the weekend. Motorists are reminded to take it slow, use extreme caution and watch for snowplows that will be operating at lower speeds," the North Dakota Department of Transportation said in a statement Friday.

BISMARCK — North Dakota transportation officials have reopened several highways Friday, April 15, after a blizzard battered much of the state and prompted road closures this week.

Interstate 29 and Interstate 94 are open through all of North Dakota as of noon Friday, and U.S. Highway 83 from Bismarck to Minot was reopened.

"While the closures are lifted, road conditions may be poor, and caution should be taken," NDDOT said.

As of 11 a.m., no travel advisories were in place for some western counties, including Golden Valley, Billings, Stark, Sioux, Morton, Oliver and Grant.

"Roads may be icy, and snow removal equipment will be present on roadways through the weekend. Motorists are reminded to take it slow, use extreme caution and watch for snowplows that will be operating at lower speeds," NDDOT said.
