FARGO -- Heavy snow and high winds are causing areas of near-zero visibility near Jamestown and west in North Dakota, causing the state Department of Transportation to issue a no-travel advisory over the western three-fourths of the state and close Interstate 94 from Mandan to the Montana border.

Snow and ice are covering roadways, creating hazardous conditions that may make it unsafe to travel, according to NDDOT.

Snowplows have been pulled in rural areas south of Jamestown and Valley City due to zero visibility. Just after 2 p.m., NDDOT closed Interstate 94 from Mandan to the Montana border because of extremely poor road and visibility conditions.

A travel alert remains in effect for the Valley City area. Motorists in the southeast region of North Dakota should be advised that, as the storm moves east, conditions will deteriorate, according to NDDOT.

For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website: www.dot.nd.gov.
