MnDOT

Several highways in south central Minnesota are experiencing water over the roadways and a few of those roads are closed. In most cases, MnDOT is able to keep roadways open while crews work to clear a drainage path for the water. Motorists are advised to slow down and use caution wherever they see crews working. If flooding occurs, lanes or other sections of highway may need to be closed with barricades and other traffic control devices. Closures include Highway 75 from the Iowa line to Trosky and Highway 13 south of Waseca. MnDOT reminds drivers that Six inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars, causing loss of control and possible stalling. A foot of water will float many vehicles. And Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles and pick-ups. For real-time traffic and travel information in Minnesota, visit www.511mn.org.
