The Minnesota Department of Transportation has enacted a road closure on Highway 89 from Highway 1 to Marshall county road 54 near Grygla due to a culvert failure. The highway will remain closed until further notice and traffic should seek alternate routes.
MnDOT crews continue to monitor water levels along with the remaining highway segments that are closed due to flooding. Highways impacted by floods need to be inspected for damage and safety prior to opening.
The highways in northwestern Minnesota that remain closed due to flooding include:
- Highway 89 near Grygla, between Hwy 1 and CR 54
- Highway 175 between North Dakota and CR 34, west of Hallock
- Highway 220 north of Oslo, between Highway 1 and Highway 11
- Highway 317 between Highway 220 and North Dakota border
- Highway 102 northwest of Fertile from Hwy 32 to CR 44
Highways that have been opened and are clear of water:
- Highway 1 near Oslo (5 ton weigh limit in effect)
- Highway 2B Sorlie bridge in East Grand Forks
- Highway 9 south of Ada
- Highway 75 north of Climax
- Hwy 220 south of Alvarado
Areas that have water on the road or are closed because of flooding are marked on MnDOT’s road conditions map www.511mn.org. When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
