Lake Orono waterway

Open. Watch for posted signs and obey channel navigation buoys in water at the bridge. During construction, there’s a chance it’ll be too narrow for some boats to pass due to the current bridge having one pier, and the new bridge having two piers.

Elk River is Open for Business

Access to local businesses and residences to be maintained and open, follow directional signs.
