The North Dakota Department of Transportation encourages motorists to check road conditions before traveling due to rapidly changing conditions.

Fluctuating water levels make it difficult to predict when and where water will go over a

roadway or recede from the roadway. For updated road information, call 511 from any

type of phone or go to the Travel Information Map on our website at www.dot.nd.gov.
