Fargo Prepares for Red River Cresting by Friday

April 30, 2014

The Red River in Fargo is expected to crest at nearly 26 feet by Friday.

The National Weather Service is predicting the river will reach moderate flood stage at approximately 25.7 feet.

City officials say they don’t expect to implement any emergency flood measures during the event, but crews from the Public Works Department will shut down storm sewer gates, and the storm sewer lift stations will begin operating.

Elm Street between 14th and 15th Avenues were closed Monday evening.

Officials plan on closing the North Broadway Bridge when the river reaches between 22 and 23 feet.
