DALLAS — Construction equipment, clothing, footwear and equipment will be used to clear roads after the state’s largest flood since the 1980s, officials said.

Dakota Emergency Management Director Paul DeSantis said Wednesday that construction equipment will also be used during the cleanup and the release of water from the Mississippi River into the river, the same source reported.

Deshantis said that there are no immediate plans to reopen the state-owned Dakota Access pipeline, but the company said it is working with state and federal authorities to do so.

The company said in a statement that it would provide additional updates on its progress.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
