State highways into Cavalier reopened to traffic

CAVALIER -- North Dakota's Transportation Department has reopened two state highways into the Pembina County city of Cavalier, where residents were evacuated earlier this week because of a threatened dam.

Officials say Highway 5 and state Highway 18 into Cavalier are now open, as residents are being allowed back into their homes.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials were reopening the Canadian border port of entry at Neche (NEE'-chee) at noon. The port is on Highway 18. Customs officials had been rerouting traffic either to the Pembina port of entry to the east or the Walhalla port to the west.
