UPDATED: Both lanes of westbound I-94 near Fargo now open to traffic; eastbound I-94 near Fargo still reduced to one lane
Both lanes of the westbound roadway of I-94, from Lynchberg to Wheatland, is now open to traffic. The eastbound roadway of I-94 from Casselton to Mapleton is still reduced to a single lane due to heavy snow drifts.
Motorists are advised not to pass vehicles in this area as snow drifts may be encountered and snow fog may be created, reducing visibility. Snow drifts may also become hardened due to wind and cold temperatures and can be dangerous to attempt to drive through. Motorists are advised to watch for snow plows and other snow removal equipment as they will be working in the area throughout the day.
All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions, reduce traffic speeds as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website: www.dot.nd.gov.
