A couple of roads and trails will be closed in Mankato and North Mankato tomorrow as water levels continue to rise along the river.

Judson Bottom Road in North Mankato will be closed tomorrow beginning from Lookout Drive to Valerie Lane until further notice, the river is nearly level with the road and is expected to crest at 24 feet by Monday morning.

In Mankato, the trails going along the river from Kiwanis Recreation Area to the Highway 14 Bridge will be closed along with the trail going from Riverfront Park to Sibley Park.

Land of Memories Park will also be closed but Floyd Roberts Pavilion is reserved for a private event and will remain open.

Because Land of Memories is above flood stage, this weekend's Solstice music event has been impacted.

According to a post on their Facebook page, the music festival has been moved to The Hub Food Park in Old Town Mankato.
