People are driving with caution that created a bumper to bumper train of cars for about 3 to 4 miles. Authorities have reduced speeds to 15 miles per hour. I-29 also has water on the shoulder, 8 miles north of Manvel.

Several other highways, besides dozens of washed out county roads, are under water. Highway 75 near Kent is still closed. Highway 12 east Ortonville is closed from 75 to Big Stone County Road 21.

The following are down to one lane because of levee construction: Highway 13 near Lamoure to Edgeley. Highway 11 at Lidgerwood.

Drivers should take it slow on Highway 75 near Kragnes, Highway 200 east of Mahnomen, and Highway 12 east of Big Stone County Road 21. Those roads are open but under water.
