    I-35 in MN Closed...

    For those of you headed down to Ames early for the game... I35 is closed in both directions due to flooding from Ellendale, MN at MN 30 to Owatonna, MN at US 14. This is that area that is seeing Road Work at US 14.

    http://511mn.org/secondary/incidents...S3-2134-11.htm

    NB Detour: Highway 30, to Steele County Road 45, to Highway 14 and then back to I-35.
    SB Detour: Reverse of above listed detour

    Many
    other roads are closed due to flooding as well in the southern half of the state. Many spots in So. MN saw 7-10 inches of rain in the last couple of days.

    Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't heard that. We are planning to leave the Twin Cities around 2-3 pm today.

    Hope Cabelas isn't under water. Could probably test out some of their equipment better that way though.

    From a Press Release sent to me by MNDoT

    UPDATE: Interstate 35 now open south of Owatonna
    Flooding continues to create difficult driving conditions in
    southeastern Minnesota

    ROCHESTER, Minn. – (2 p.m.) Interstate 35 south of Owatonna is now open, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Mn/DOT continues to advise motorists to use caution in southeastern Minnesota due to flooding. Several highways have water over the road and some are closed at this time.

    Flooding is difficult to predict and roads may be closed or restricted without warning. Motorists are advised to check road conditions in advance of travel.

    Mn/DOT crews are working around the clock to make highways safe, control flooding and repair roads when waters recess.

    Every flood is dangerous to motorists. If you must travel follow these safe driving practices (source: Federal Emergency Management Agency http://www.fema.gov/hazard/flood/fl_during.shtm):

    Many roadways are very muddy and when wet, the surfaces become very slippery. In addition, many roadways are narrow due to flooding impacts and many are missing shoulders.
