U.S. Highway 75 was re-opened Saturday morning north of Halstad, Minn., from Norman County Road 19 to Norman County Road 17, according to a news release from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Also, the U.S. Highway 10 bridge over the Mississippi River at the Little Falls bypass was partially opened at 5 p.m. Friday, according to a news release from the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office.

Traffic was restricted to a single lane in each direction on the westbound lanes over the bridge. Eastbound lanes were to remain closed.

The westbound ramp from Morrison County Road 76 to westbound Highway 10 will remain closed. The eastbound off ramp to Morrison County Road 76 will also remain closed. Motorists should watch for signed exits.

The bridge was closed to traffic March 17 because of damage from an ice jam in the main channel and erosion to the overflow bridge.
