BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Another highway in North Dakota that has been shut down by flooding in recent days has reopened.

The state Transportation Department says water has receded from U.S. Highway 81 south of Minto and it is once again safe for travel. State Highway 17 remains closed at the bridge crossing the Red River in Walsh County.

Traffic speeds are still reduced on N.D. Highway 14 south of the U.S. Highway 2 junction at Towner because of floodwaters. But transportation officials say traffic speeds have returned to normal on Highway 81 south of Hamilton, where floodwaters have now receded.
