BISMARCK — The North Dakota Department of Transportation and North Dakota Highway Patrol have reopened Interstate 29 from the Canadian border to Grand Forks.

The stretch of interstate was closed on Friday night due to zero visibility, blowing snow and icy roads, the NDDOT said in a news release.

"Reduced visibility and snow-covered conditions may still be present on highways throughout the state. Motorists are encouraged to slow down and drive for the conditions," NDDOT said in a Saturday morning news release.
