State Avenue has, once again, turned into a winter wonderland. Heavy drifting, one lane of traffic, and low visibility has prompted the street department to temporarily close State Avenue from 12th Street West to 15th Street West while crews work at clearing the roadway again.

All roadways in town are slick, and motorists are urged to slow down, keep distance between vehicles, and drive defensively.

I-94 remains closed from Dickinson to Fargo.

*Travel Alert*

The street department has advised us that State Avenue between 12th Street West and 15th Street West (under the I-94 bridge) will be closed today from about 2 PM to 5 PM for snow removal. Residents are advised to plan for an alternate route if needing to use State Avenue during that time.

Also, 21st Street West from State Avenue and 30th Avenue West remains closed due to heavy drifting and multiple stuck vehicles. Continue using alternate routes until the road can be cleared.

Finally, the DPD has received numerous complaints of citizens depositing/blowing snow onto the roadway. We remind everyone that it is a Class B Misdemeanor (33.04.310) to deposit snow onto the roadway. Please help keep our streets clear and safe for travel!

Unfortunately, it's that time of year again! The snow has arrived!

City ordinance requires vehicles parked on the roadway to be moved every 48 hours.

Vehicles parked in the snow emergency routes need to be moved once a snow emergency has been declared.

Moving your vehicle gives the street department a better opportunity to clean the streets without having to plow around vehicles.

If your vehicle falls under one of these conditions and you fail to move it, your vehicle could be subject to tow at your expense.

Please move your vehicles and assist the street department with moving the snow off the roadway.

Drive carefully! Allow yourself more time to get to your destination and drive defensively.

During his off time from the police department, SGT Wallace was also a paramedic with the Dickinson Ambulance Service, adding to his tremendous dedication and service to the citizens of Dickinson and the surrounding area.
