The Red River is on the rise between Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN. Today the cities shut down The Sorlie Bridge by default after installing the flood gates into the permanent levee system on both sides of the river. The Red River at GF is at 44 feet today and expected to crest at 48 feet in the next 48 hours. The 1997 historic crest was 54.35 feet and Grand Forks’ flood walls are now built to 63 feet. Video includes aerial views of the river today and a fun cruise across the empty Sorlie Bridge.
