Hwy 41 in Chaska to Close Due to Rising River Levels

Officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation say a section of Highway 41 in Chaska will close this week at the Minnesota River crossing due to rising water levels.

The closure will begin Thursday at 9am.

The affected section runs from just south of downtown Chaska to just north of Highway 169.

Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour.

Officials say Highway 41 will remain closed until the water recedes and crews can repair any resulting road damage.

Highway 30 near New Germany from Yale Avenue to the County line was closed Tuesday due to flooding.
