GRAND FORKS — An inspection on North Washington Street will result in one-lane traffic for a day.

According to an announcement from the city of Grand Forks, North Washington will be down to one lane in each direction starting at approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 14, as the North Dakota Department of Transportation begins a routine inspection of the railroad bridge over Washington near DeMers Avenue.

With the lane closures, there will be a 12-foot width limit.

All lanes are expected to be re-opened by the end of the day.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
