Icy commute Wednesday for some North Dakotans; state issues travel alert for 2 regions


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Recent freezing rain and snow led to an icy commute for residents in parts of North Dakota.

The state Transportation Department issued a travel alert for the south central and northeastern parts of the state due to the road conditions early Wednesday. The alert meant motorists could still travel but were urged to be aware of the conditions and use caution.

Officials in the Canadian province of Manitoba on Wednesday morning closed a stretch of Highway 75 due to blowing snow and poor visibility. The highway was closed from St. Agatha to the U.S. border, where it becomes Interstate 29. The road was reopened about midday.
