WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williams County Emergency Services says floodwaters from the spring melt have made a segment of County 6 inaccessible to any through traffic, including emergency responders.

The Williston Herald reports (http://bit.ly/OlgpOb ) that barricades have been placed along the road just east of Country 9 by 133rd Avenue and 57th Street NW and at County 11 by 129th Avenue NW and 57th Street NW, just west of Springbrook.

Emergency Services director Mike Hallesy says the barricades have been put in place for safety, and it is important for volunteer emergency service providers to know the location of the barricaded roads. Hallesy says the barricades will be left up until floodwaters recede.

BNSF Railway closed the railroad crossing at 105th Avenue NW and 68th Street NW for repairs at noon Friday.
