BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Transportation authorities in North Dakota have issued a travel alert that covers the state’s oil and gas region.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation has issued the alert for northwest North Dakota due to blowing snow. The conditions are expected to create icy roads and reduced visibility.

Cities included in the alert are Williston, Watford City, New Town, and surrounding areas.

A travel alert means conditions are such that motorists can still drive in those areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing conditions.

Transportation authorities urge drivers to reduce speeds.
