They are in Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park south of Mandan. It is a beautiful park with a great campground.

That must be it. The photos on the state website look familiar!

And I really DID remember them at the right size -- they're not exactly cramped!

Actually only the eastbound lane was closed from Jamestown to Fargo.

My hubby works for NDDOT, so this is the way I understand it.

It was when there were problems in Moorhead and they were asking a couple thousand families to voluntarily evacuate. The highway department & law enforcement cleared the eastbound lane and blocked off every eastbound on-ramp and had a patrolman stationed at each ramp so they could have 4 lanes of traffic leaving town if necessary. All the extra patrolmen were there to help direct traffic if needed, and help if someone ran out of fuel or had an accident or any other emergency. There were fuel trucks stationed in a few places along the interstate, too.

As we know, most people stayed in their homes and the ones that did leave mostly moved in with friends, family, & coworkers, so law enforcement didn't have to use the eastbound lanes as westbound.

I believe I-94 had the same setup, but for some reason it didn't activate. They have to find out where the ball got dropped on that one. I-29 it didn't matter since both north & southbousd were closed due to water rushing over the roads.


At least they know how long it takes, now. I see it as there are all these other disaster/emergency drills that they have to do. They'd never done this before, so now they at least know how long it takes, etc. so I'd say that was a 'GOOD THING'

Well, I was 4 or 5 when I was there, and I still remember it -- I'd say as soon as a kid can walk around without getting too tired, that's when!

Here’s a whole bunch of photos of the flooding in the Valley City area.

Her dad is head of the street/water dept. He was supposed to be taking pics of everything for FEMA, but didn’t have time, so he brought Stacie along a few days. She’s also gotten pics from a flyover, and a couple other people. She adds more as she gets them, so there are additions every few days.
