Second Street Dike Back in Place

Posted: Updated:

It's a lot smaller than normal but as all our recent rainfall works it's way into the Red River it continues to rise. The Red is forecasted to crest early tomorrow morning at 30.1 feet, just barely over major flood stage.  

City of Fargo engineers made the call to put the dike back in place yesterday, originally calling for it to be four feet high but that has since been reduced to a two foot high dike because of crest reductions.

This means 2nd St. is now closed from 4th St. S. – Main Ave. and from 1st – 6th Ave. North. Drivers will also notice restrictions to through traffic on 11th Ave. North between Oak and Elm.

In Moorhead, the 3rd St. Underpass is closed from 1st Ave. N. to Woodlawn Park Drive. Woodlawn and Gooseberry Parks are also closed.

Downtown remains open for business but you're asked to avoid the area if your final destination is not downtown. Traffic congestion will be increased with the dike in place and the on-going one way conversion project.

2nd Street will reopen at 11 a.m. today, between 1st – 4th Avenues North.  Southbound traffic will remain two lanes, with exception to a small area north of 4th Avenue where it will be reduced to single lane.  Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane the entire length of the levee.
