Road Conditions Explained

TRAVEL and Road Conditions - The North Dakota Department of Transportation determines the road conditions for Hwy 83 and the surrounding area for travel to and from base, and the 5th Mission Support Group commander determines road conditions on-base. If weather conditions are severe and warrant either a delay or restricted reporting for duty, the 5th MSG commander will consult with downtown authorities and leadership from both wings before a final decision is made.

If delayed or restricted reporting is implemented, instructions are relayed to the command post and public affairs for dissemination via telephone notification and the MAFB Information Hotline.

Green - Normal day-to-day travel conditions.

Yellow - Degraded environment when cautious conditions exist. Drive according to weather and road conditions. Use of cruise control is prohibited when operating a government vehicle.
