High water is again causing issues on bridges and roads in some areas.

Carver County reported Tuesday morning that Highway 11/Jonathan Carver Parkway and Highway 9 (Scott County) would be closed near Jordan due to flooding conditions on the Minnesota River.


That means drivers won't be able to travel on Highway 11 to Jordan going south from Highway 50. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate river crossings, including Highway 25 near Belle Plaine or Highway 41 in Chaska.

Flooding has once again also closed sections of roadway near Henderson.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation said Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson closed Monday night, and Highway 19 between Henderson and Highway 169 closed Tuesday morning.

The closures are due to flooding on the Rush River and Minnesota River, respectively.
