The Bloomington Fire Department said Highway 169 North was reduced to one lane for a stretch, and the ramp from Old Shakopee Road to the highway was closed Monday afternoon because of several grass fires in a ditch along a sound wall.

The portion impacted is the stretch between Old Shakopee Road and Pioneer Trail, a tweet from the department said.
