Lane closure on Highway 75 in Dumont due to water over the road

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed the northbound lane on Highway 75 in Dumont due to water over the road. Crews are constructing a dike along the highway for temporary flood mitigation, and traffic will take turns in the southbound lane.

The flood mitigation and traffic control devices for the lane closure will remain in place until water levels recede.

In the same area, there is also water over the road on Highway 75 between Dumont and Graceville, and on Highway 28 east of Graceville. Drivers should slow down when approaching the signage and warning lights placed at the sites.

MnDOT cautions motorists to be alert for the potential of road flooding throughout west central Minnesota as the spring snow melt continues and water levels rise. Highways could be closed at times if water poses a safety hazard to motorists. Areas that have water on the road or are closed because of flooding are marked on MnDOT’s road conditions map www.511mn.org.
