Road closures

Just a quick update on the flooding situation around the metro, specifically south of the Minnesota River.

County Road 9 near Highway 169 to 185th Street W. in Jordan is closed due to water covered roadways.

The County Road 101 and Highway 41 river crossings between Shakopee and Chaska will be closing Friday night at 6 PM. Expect to see heavier traffic on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge while these roads are closed. Motorists are urged to use Highways 169 and 212, as well as Interstate 494.

The storm system that I mentioned to impact the area over the weekend has shifted south during the week and will being snows to Iowa and Missouri. We will remain dry, which will help the flooding effort.

I will attempt to add some photos of the flooding over the weekend as the rivers begin to crest.
