At mid-morning Friday, a line of vehicles stretching from the Highway 75 Bypass to south of the main entrance to the University of Minnesota Crookston campus waits for U.S. Highway 2, closed from Crookston to Grand Forks, N.D. during Thursday’s blizzard, to be reopened.

At press time Friday, U.S. Highway 2 was open again.

Highway 75 was closed during the blizzard as well.

At press time Friday it was open once again to traffic, but not before traffic was backed up south of Crookston because of a semi tractor-trailer partially in the ditch and stuck that was blocking part of the driving lanes.
