TENNEY, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Transportation closed Highway 55 west of Tenney, Minn., in Wilkin County from U.S. Highway 75 to the Minnesota-North Dakota border on Friday morning, April 19, due to flooding.

Likewise, North Dakota transportation officials temporarily closed state Highway 11 from Fairmount, N.D., in Richland County to the Minnesota border due to water over the highway.

Drivers must use alternate routes.

The roads will remain closed until water levels drop.
