Snowplows being pulled from northwest N.D. roads, some highways blocked

Snowplows are being pulled from the roadways and some highways are blocked in northwest North Dakota, according to the North Dakota Department of Transportation.

U.S. Highway 85 is blocked from the junction of state highways 50 and 5 in due to heavy snow drifts. State highway 50 is blocked from the junction of U.S. 85 to state highway 42 near Alamo due to a traffic incident.

Snowplow operators have been working since early morning and are being pulled from the roadways in Dickinson, Williston, rural areas around Minot and areas north of Devils Lake. Snowplows will resume operation early Tuesday morning when it is safe.

Motorists should not travel in these areas, the NDDOT says.
