St. Louis County Public Works says the temporary closures will continue until the high water recedes for:

  • County Road 338 (also known as Aurora Road) south of the Town Line Road
  • County State Aid Highway 99 from the Town Line Road north to County Road 343 (Bodas Road)
  • County Road 607/331 east of Long Lake Road
  • County Road 344 (South Look Lake Road) south of the Town Line Road
  • County Road 632 (Wilson Road) in Makinen

More rain is in the forecast so the roads are expected to remain closed through the weekend.

St. Louis County Public Works crews are monitoring the condition of these and other roads and will post warnings and detours as needed.

Anyone who encounters a dangerous road condition is asked to call 9-1-1.
