FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Traffic is moving slowly tonight in the eastbound lanes of I29 at the Main Avenue overpass.

Heat caused the road to buckle early this evening. What started as a little break is now one foot deep and has spread into the walkway. Bob Walton, the District Engineer tells us they’re going to try to hold it together tonight, but the road won’t be perfect. They have reduced the speed limit.

Walton says in his more than two decades on the job, this is the worst road buckling he’s ever seen.
