30-mile stretch of I-29 in ND remains closed

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — About 30 miles of Interstate 29 north of Fargo remain closed because of flooding, as do many state highways in North Dakota. State Transportation officials say both northbound and southbound lanes of I-29 are closed from Exit 69 to Exit 100. Traffic is being detoured.

State Transportation officials say both northbound and southbound lanes of I-29 are closed from Exit 69 to Exit 100. Traffic is being detoured.

Transportation spokesman Kevin Gorder says the highway will reopen only when it's safe for travel and he doesn't know when that might be.

About half a dozen state highways remain closed due to flooding. Some have water over the road in more than one area, including N.D. 200, which is closed in the Goodrich, Hurdsfield and Hillsboro areas.

Traffic speeds are reduced on many other state and federal highways in North Dakota, including U.S. 83 both north and south of Minot.
