FARGO - The closure of Interstate 29 north of here is more than a headache for area businesses. It's costly. The route between Fargo and Grand Forks that normally is 79 miles for Valley Express truck drivers is now a 116-mile route, said owner Glenn Nelson. That's adding $60 to $80 in shipping costs for each trip, Nelson said. The detour also restricts trucks that are overweight or hauling anything that is over in dimension, Nelson said. I-29 is closed north of Fargo from Cass County Road 20 to North Dakota Highway 200 south of Hillsboro due to water over the roadway.
