Many North Dakota highways affected by flooding

BISMARCK — Another state highway in North Dakota has been affected by spring flooding.

State Transportation officials say N.D. Highway 200 is closed near Bowdon and also south of Hillsboro because of water on the roadway.

Other state highways closed due to flooding are 15 at Fessenden, 11 west of Ludden and 17 from Interstate 29 to the Red River. The Mapleton truck parking area on westbound Interstate 94 also is closed.

Many other state highways are affected by flooding but remain open, though traffic speeds are reduced on many of them.
