Traffic can detour around the area on CSAH 7 north to State Trunk Highway 37, then west to CSAH 25, then south on CSAH 25 back to CSAH 16. Additional local detours are marked.
  • County Road 442 (South Townline Road) at the southern city limit of Hibbing between State Highway 73 and County Road 965 (Hingeley Road).  

Although they are considered safe to drive on, two other roads are now posted with warning signs due to water on the roadway.

  • CSAH 95 (Bodas Road) in Fayal Township between Miller Trunk Highway and the Wellstone Memorial Site.
