Traffic impacts

A two-mile-long section of Hwy 210, which serves as the east entrance to Jay Cooke State Park is closed due to significant damage from severe flooding that occurred in June 2012. MnDOT is rebuilding the closed section of Hwy 210. Work began in late-May 2015 and will be completed in October 2016. The highway will remain closed until the work in completed.
