The water has receded on the following roadways and traffic speeds are normal:

· I-29, both northbound and southbound, one-half mile south of 52nd Avenue South near Fargo, levee construction is complete. All lanes are open.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution while traveling, as vehicles that leave the roadway may become immersed in high water. Motorists should also be aware that areas with water on the road may become icy as temperatures drop below freezing.

The NDDOT encourages 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 the roadway or recede from the roadway.
