Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Construction crews are busy building this levee on 2nd street in downtown Fargo.

First through sixth avenue will were closed off around two this afternoon and remain closed to traffic until the construction is complete.

Fargo expects the dike will take about three days to finish and asks drivers to be patient until it's done.

Roger Yliniemi- UTP Crew: "Ya know, obviously, just everybody stay away from the area. Ya know, let the construction guys get in, do what we need to do. Just safety for us and our families.">

The North Broadway Bridge could also be closing soon, depending on how fast the River rises.
