NDDOT crews will start clearing between 2 and 3 a.m. Thursday.

North Dakota DOT has I-29 closed from the Canadian border to the South Dakota border due to blowing snow causing very icy roads and areas of zero visibility.

I-29 also remains closed from the North Dakota-South Dakota border to Watertown, S.D.
