EGF's River Road exit to Grand Forks closed; rising Red passes 40 feet

North River Road in East Grand Forks temporarily is no longer a route to U.S. Highway 2 and Grand Forks, thanks to rising floodwaters that have forced the closing this morning of the road in that area.

The Red River reached 40.74 feet in East Grand Forks at 5:30 this morning and is rising. The floodwaters are expected to crest early next week at about 48 feet.
