Steady rain — heavy at times — throughout the day Tuesday caused problems throughout Williston and around Williams County.
Early in the day, Williams County restricted all gravel and chip seal roads to 12,000 pounds GVW. Later, flooding caused roads to close around the area.
Part of Front Street along Second Avenue West was closed Tuesday afternoon because of water spilling onto the roadway.
Several hours later, part of County Road 6 was closed for the same reason.
In all, 4 miles of County Road 6, also called 57th Street NW, from CR 9 — 133rd Avenue NW — to CR 11 —129th Avenue NW — were closed because of water over the roadway.
Barricades and “Road Closed” signs will be present.
Part of County Road 42 was closed by flooding, as well. Barricades were placed at the intersection of CR 6 and CR 42 and the intersection of CR 6 and Highway 1804.
