The road to Oslo, Minn., from the west opened Thursday for the first time in several days, as floodwaters receded just enough.
Sgt. Aaron Hummel of the North Dakota Highway Patrol said state Highway 54, from Interstate 29 to the Minnesota border on the bridge just west of Oslo, is open for local traffic. Access to Oslo from the east along Minnesota Highway 1 remains closed because of floodwaters.
“We’re not allowing people to sightsee,” Hummel said. But for Oslo residents and others who live in the rural area west of Oslo, it’s possible again to get from here to there.
Hummel said I-29 is open, all lanes, from Grand Forks to the Canadian border, except for a small one-lane situation in the southbound lanes near the Minto, N.D., exit.
