Grand Forks, ND – Officials from Grand Forks and East Grand Forks will be opening the Point Bridge on Minnesota Ave. at 1:30 pm today for traffic.


It will be monitored all weekend for water on the roadway. If water builds up on the roadway on the East Grand Forks side the bridge could be closed again.


The Sorlie Bridge (Demers Ave.) will remain closed. The Kennedy Bridge on Gateway Dr. (Hwy. 2) remains open. Be advised of the changing traffic patterns on Gateway Dr. caused by the increased traffic.  No left hand turns are allowed between Washington St. and the Kennedy Bridge unless at a controlled intersection (N. 5th St. & N. 3rd St.).
