Some Flood-Damaged Minn. Roads Close to Reopening
Some flood-damaged roads are close to reopening in northeastern Minnesota.
Visitors should be able to drive into Jay Cooke State Park by the end of October. But they will be able to reach the park only from the west.
The Duluth News Tribune reports it may be more than a year before Minnesota Highway 210 between the park's headquarters and Duluth's Fond du Lac neighborhood reopens.
Separately, St. Louis County has developed a plan to reopen a flood-damaged section of Haines Road next year. Earlier, there was a possibility that the road wouldn't reopen until 2015.
June's rainfall and flooding damaged roads in northeastern Minnesota, but none more so than Highway 210 in and near Jay Cooke, where the road is built on hills of unstable clay and silt.
