WILLMAR, Minn. – Highway 14 near Lamberton has been opened to traffic.  On July 4, Highway 14 approximately one mile east of Lamberton, in Redwood County, was closed due to water over the road.

The bridge on Highway 30, east of Currie, over the Des Moines River is still closed.  MnDOT District 8 is concerned about the force and speed of the water and does not want the traveling public to use the bridge until it can ensure it is safe.
