As blizzard conditions grip the region, the North Dakota Department of Transportation has closed the interstate south of Grand Forks.

The NDDOT, along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol, closed Interstate 29 from Grand Forks to Fargo due to strong winds causing blowing and drifting snow, areas of near zero visibility, and life-threatening conditions. The interstate was opened from Fargo to the South Dakota border around 6 p.m.

Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road. The road may be impassible or blocked.

Interstate 94 remains closed from Bismarck to Fargo. North Dakota Highway 13 was reopened Saturday night.

A no-travel advisory remains in effect for south-central, southeastern and northeastern North Dakota. Cities included are Jamestown, Valley City, Devils Lake, Fargo, Wahpeton, Grand Forks, and surrounding areas. Motorists should not travel due to hazardous conditions that make it unsafe to travel.
