The waters along the Minnesota, St. Croix and Mississippi rivers are still at high levels and that has a number of roads closed. Here is a current list from MnDOT and other agencies.

Roads that remain closed:
Highway 25 – northbound truck lane near Green Isle
Highway 41 and Highway 101 Minnesota River Crossing in Chaska
Highway 36 Stillwater Lift Bridge

Several other roads and river crossings in Scott County are also closed due to flooding. This includes County Hwys 101 and 9. Check the Scott County website for updates.

Roads that remain restricted:
Northbound 169 restricted to one-lane south of Belle Plaine

The ramp from northbound 35W to Black Dog Road is also closed.

Multiple crews are working throughout the Twin Cities Metropolitan area around the clock to improve drainage, remove debris and recover roads.

Motorists should plan accordingly. When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
