The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) in partnership with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) has CLOSED all of I-29 in the state due to blowing snow resulting in near zero visibility.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation says 18 drivers were rescued on I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks overnight. Some were taken to Altru Hospital with frostbite and other cold-weather injuries. The DOT is urging drivers to stay off closed roadways so that they do not become stranded.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation says most of I-29 and I-94 will likely remain closed until late Sunday morning or early Sunday afternoon. The DOT says closed interstate stretches between Grand Forks and Fargo and Fargo and Jamestown will remain closed. I-29 from Grand Forks to the Canadian Border is now open.
