Sorlie Bridge to temporarily close due to flooding

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) anticipate the closure of the Sorlie Bridge due to flooding on Business US Highway 2 (DeMers Ave) near the bridge. The closure is expected to take place the middle of next week. Motorists must use an alternative route during the closure. The cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks will announce its closure as it fits into the cities flood efforts.

Motorists should drive with caution as flooding continues to affect the area highways and should check road conditions before traveling due to rapidly changing conditions. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website www.dot.nd.gov.

NDDOT warns motorists that driving through water is dangerous and should not drive around barricades or into flooded areas as vehicles that leave the roadway may become immersed in high water. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the Travel Information Map on our website: https://www.dot.nd.gov/travel-info-v2/
