Highway 93 open to Henderson 12 Jul 18

The Minnesota Department of Transportation opened Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. That stretch of highway has been closed since July 8th due to flooding of the Minnesota River. To minimize damage to the saturated road bed, MnDOT has placed a 7-ton axle weight restriction on this stretch of Highway 93. The weight restriction is anticipated to remain in place for approximately 2 weeks. Motorists are advised to drive with caution as crews continue to work off the shoulder to establish erosion control and stabilize the surrounding area. While Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson has opened, Highway 19 east of Henderson is still closed due to the Minnesota River flood impacts.
