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.
