Water recedes from US Highway 2, ND Highway 53
TOWNER, N.D. (AP) _ The North Dakota Department of Transportation says water has receded from U.S. Highway 2 south of Towner and North Dakota Highway 53 east of Max.
Officials say traffic speeds have returned to normal on the two roadways.
U.S. Highway 83, nine miles north of Max, and North Dakota Highway 200, four miles west of Hurdsfield, remain open with speeds reduced.
Traffic officials warn that fluctuating water levels make it difficult to predict when and where water will go over a roadway or recede from the roadway.
