North Dakota closes highway in Fessenden due to flooding

FESSENDEN, N.D. — The North Dakota Transportation Department says state Highway 15 has been closed at the roadway underpass in Fessenden due to flooding.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area and take other routes.

The Transportation Department says it has reopened North Dakota Highway 32 about 15 miles north of the junction with U.S. Highway 2 near Lankin. The department says water is running over Highway 32 in three other areas near Lankin.

Department officials advise that flooding may cause water to be on a number of highways in the next few days in the northeastern part of the state. Drivers are asked to slow down and use caution because vehicles that leave the roadway may become immersed in water.

Ward County officials expect water to cover some roads for several days.
