Commuters using southbound Hwy. 65 will run into a huge snag in East Bethel and Ham Lake. The highway is shut down at Viking Blvd. due to a fiery wreck ahead at 187th Lane.

A big back up had developed. A suggestion would be to get off Hwy. 65 at 221st Ave and head west over to Round Lake Blvd., then south to Hwy. 10.

The official detour takes drivers east on Viking to County 68, then south to Crosstown Blvd. and back west to Hwy. 65.
