ND Hwy 5 temporarily closed from I-29 to the Red River

The North Dakota Department of Transportation has temporarily closed ND Hwy 5 from I-29 to the Red River (Exit 203 near Joliette) due to water on the roadway. This road will remain closed until river levels recede. Motorists will need to take an alternate route.

The NDDOT urges motorists to check road conditions before traveling due to rapidly changing conditions. Fluctuating water levels make it difficult to predict when and where water will go over a roadway or recede from the roadway. For updated road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the Travel Information Map on our website at
