The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) detoured I-29 traffic between the Manvel and Grafton Interchanges at 4 p.m. today due to water on the roadway in various locations. Both northbound and southbound traffic were detoured with the exception of commercial trucks with a weight of 26,000 pounds or more and emergency vehicles.

Traffic for both northbound and southbound roadways will be detoured as follows:

· Northbound I-29 traffic detoured north on US Highway 81 at the Manvel/US 81 Interchange (Exit 152) to ND Highway 17 at Grafton then east on ND 17 back to I-29.

· Southbound I-29 traffic detoured west on Highway 17 at the Grafton/ND 17 Interchange (Exit 176) then south on US Highway 81 at Grafton to Interstate-29 at Manvel.

Highway Patrol will have a check point at both ends of the detour and will be turning around all traffic except trucks and emergency vehicles.

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. For road information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the website: www.dot.nd.gov.
