Hwy 93 near Henderson closes due to flooding

A portion of Highway 93 near Henderson will remain closed until further notice due to flooding, officials said Monday.

Flooding forced the Minnesota Department of Transportation to close Highway 93 between Highway 169 and Henderson Sunday morning.

MnDOT urged motorists to use Highway 19 as an alternate route until Highway 93 reopens.

Flooding also forced a temporary closure in St. Peter, but that reopened Monday morning.
