NECHE, N.D. — All commercial and passenger vehicle traffic traveling through the Neche Port of Entry will be required to use an alternate route due to flood related closure of North Dakota Highway 18, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a release on Tuesday, May 3.

Passenger vehicle traffic can utilize the Pembina, North Dakota, entry to the east of Neche and the Walhalla, North Dakota, entry to the west of Neche. Commercial traffic can utilize the Pembina Port of Entry.

Water crossing the highway south of the Neche Port of Entry has made the roadway impassable.
