Water over numerous ND roads
The North Dakota Department of Transportation announced this morning that water has receded on Highway 66, 4 miles east of Egeland.
However, the following road and lane closures are in place because of water, according to the DOT.
· Highway 66, 1 mile east of Drayton. Motorists should use alternate route.
· Highway 54, between I-29 and Oslo, Minn. Local traffic is allowed. Traffic control in place.
· Highway 17 Red River crossing, 11 miles east of Grafton.
· Sorlie Bridge on Business Highway 2/Demers Ave in Grand Forks. Motorists should use Highway 2 Kennedy Bridge.
· The westbound Mapleton Truck Parking Area on I-94, 12 miles west of Fargo.
The following highways have water on them but remain open:
· Southbound traffic on I-29, between exit 69 (County Road20) and exit 79 (Argusville), is detoured into the northbound road creating head-to-head traffic due to water on the southbound roadway. Traffic control is in place with traffic speeds reduced to 40 mph.
· Argusville residents will need to follow detour signs to get on and off I-29.
· Northbound road of I-29, 8 miles north of Manvel. Traffic reduced to one lane. Speed at 10 mph.
The following highways are reduced to one lane due to levee construction:
· Highway 13, near LaMoure. No oversize or overweight loads allowed from LaMoure to Edgeley.
· Highway 11 at Lidgerwood. No oversize or overweight loads allowed.
Fluctuating water levels make it difficult to predict when and where water will go. For updated road information, call 511, according to the DOT.
