UPDATE: Highway 55 east of Lowry remains closed through the end of the week


DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—(2:45 p.m.) Highway 55 east of Lowry will remain closed through at least Friday to allow crews to continue working on downed power lines. The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol closed Highway 55 on Aug. 1 due to storm damage.


Traffic is detoured using Highway 29 and Pope County Road 28.


The power line recovery effort is taking longer than originally anticipated due to several factors. MnDOT is working with the power company to open Highway 55 as soon as safely possible.


In addition, water has receded from Highway 28 in Glenwood near the Pope County Fairgrounds so warning signs have been removed from the area.
