Main highway to Fargo closed

  • Print

Highway I-29 is closed for long stretches between Grand Forks and Fargo this morning, with travel not advised in most of the southern half of storm-swept North Dakota.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation said driving conditions are good from the Canadian border south to the Grafton turnoff.

The I-29 highway is flooded from the Minto interchange south to Grand Forks, although traffic was still being allowed to use the highway as of 7 a.m.

South of Grand Forks, it’s a mess, and from Fargo down to South Dakota, the major interstate is either closed, or motorists are urged not to drive because of ice and snow.

In Winnipeg, Courchaine Road from Highway 200 to Turnbull Drive is closed to all but emergency vehicles and school buses.

The Manitoba Highways department has closed a number of roads, including Highway 238 in the vicinity of Lockport, because of water on the road.

The following are open only to local traffic:
- Highway 201 for 17.9 kilometres east of Highway 31, south of Morden near the U.S. border;
- Highway 350 from 10 km south of MacGregor for the next 18 km.;
- Highway 564 from Bradwardine to Highway 21; and
- Road 622 linking Highway 311 to Niverville.
