Late June Flood Fight, Dike Going Up On Fargo's 2nd Street

Posted: Updated:

Fargo is in a late season flood fight. The heavy rainfall Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning is causing river levels to go up.

Work will start Wednesday afternoon on a dike on 2nd street in downtown Fargo. It will be about four feet high. City leaders say they have two contractors set up to do the work.

The Red River is expected to crest Thursday morning around 31.8 feet.

People are urged to avoid the downtown Fargo area, if you don't need to be down there. It will be very busy with dike work, in addition to the construction going on in the area.

The city of Fargo closed 2nd Street from 4th Street South to Main Avenue and also from 1st Avenue to 6th Avenue North at 9:30 Wednesday morning.

11th Avenue North from Oak Street to Elm Street will be closed to thru traffic to allow for easier hauling of clay to 2nd Street.
