MnDOT road updates as of 3:45 p.m. June 28

MANKATO -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation continues to closely monitor state highways in south central and the southwest corner of Minnesota due to flooding caused by recent heavy rains.


MnDOT removed the lane restriction on Minnesota 60 in Windom today, June 28, and it’s now fully open to traffic. Traffic restrictions on Minnesota 13 in Waterville were also removed today.


MnDOT is working hard to open highways that have been impacted by flooding as soon as it’s safe to do so. We appreciate the public’s patience as we work through this. There are several roads that are still under water, and it will be a slow process to reopen them after the flood waters recede. We also anticipate there may be damage to some of these highways and repairs will be necessary. Highways and bridges impacted by floods need to be inspected for damage and safety prior to opening.


Motorists should check www.511mn.org for current information and follow posted detour routes.
