Highway-75 opened a little more than an hour ago. It closed April 1st because of flood waters.

There are still a number of roads closed in the area. MN-DOT and the state patrol are urging you to drive carefully. A big road project is just beginning on I-29.

The bridge deck at the Argusville Interchange is being replaced. During the day, both Northbound and Southbound traffic on the interstate will be detoured up and down the ramps.

At night, traffic will be restored to I-29. The bridge will be closed for the rest of the project, which won't be complete until early fall.
