Massive snowstorm in North Dakota shuts down large stretch of I-94

BISMARCK, N.D. (KFGO) – The North Dakota Department of Transportation and North Dakota Highway Patrol closed Interstate 94 east and westbound from the Montana border to Jamestown.

Intercity travel between Bismarck and Mandan will remain open. Motorists are not allowed to travel on a closed road due to life-threatening conditions caused by blowing snow and near-zero visibility.

Due to the rapidly changing road conditions and extreme winter weather, additional road closures are expected.

“Patience is key when dealing with storm delays caused by road closures. No one’s life is worth risking in these conditions; stay home, sit tight, and wait for the storm to pass,” said Sgt. Wade Kadrmas with the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
