FARGO — The Red River in Fargo has reached "action" stage for flooding.

According to the National Weather Service's latest projections, the Red River is currently at 17.4 feet, just above the action stage requirement of 17 feet.

The city has closed a bike path between 14th Avenue North and 15th Avenue North and has activated eight lift stations along the Red River.

"Every flood is different, but we just monitor the river level, and as it comes up, we close Elm Street as needed," said Corey Houim, a street supervisor for the city of Fargo.

The city is considering closing Elm Street from 14th Avenue North to 15th Avenue North in the days to follow.
