The Minnesota Department of Transportation opened Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson. This stretch of Highway 93 was closed since June 24 due to flooding of the Minnesota River.

MnDOT will continue to closely monitor Highway 93 for possible flooding of the Rush River, which may cause the highway to close again this evening.

To minimize damage to the saturated road bed, MnDOT has placed a 7-ton axle weight restriction on this stretch of Highway 93. The weight restriction is anticipated to remain in place for approximately two weeks.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution as crews continue to work off the shoulder to establish erosion control and stabilize the surrounding area.
