St. Louis County sees washouts and road closures due to flooding

The weekend’s heavy rain fall has lead to many roads in St. Louis County to be closed.

Most notably the intersection of Maple Grove Road and Mall Drive was closed after it was completely underwater.

St. Louis county is also reporting other lesser traveled roads that have either become washed out or closed.

Those include:

  • Cant Road south of Lismore Road
  • Pioneer Junction Road between Smith River Road and Pioneer Road
  • App Road between West Knife River Road and Two Harbors Road
  • Strand Road between Jean Duluth Road and Washburn Road.

St. Louis County Public Works crews have been monitoring road conditions throughout the weekend and making repairs as able. Motorists are reminded to not drive through standing water as it may hide hazards between the surface. Anyone encountering unsafe road conditions should call 911 to report them.
