THOMPSON, N.D. (AP) - Bridges in the northern Red River Valley

are being closed as the river continues its spring rise.

The Grand Forks County Sheriff's Office on Friday morning was

closing the Thompson Bridge, a link between Grand Forks and the

Minnesota town of Crookston.

On Thursday, two of the three bridges connecting Grand Forks and

East Grand Forks, Minn., were closed.

Those two bridges were closed for about three weeks during 2009

flooding. East Grand Forks Emergency Manager Randy Gust says

officials expect they will open much sooner this year.
