North Dakota Interstate 29 Flooding – 5/4/2022

Interstate 29 has become almost an island road 30 miles north of Grand Forks due to ongoing flooding of the Red River Basin. Water stretches for as far as the drone can see with scenes looking north at 400 feet high. NDDOT has been busy this week monitoring the conditions to keep I-29 open, they had to use inflatable water barriers near the Minto/Warsaw exit.
