MANKATO, Minn. (7:00 a.m.) – The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed Highway 93 from Henderson to Highway 169 due to flooding. Motorists should use alternate routes.

Highway 19 east of Henderson remains open to traffic, however, MnDOT is closely monitoring the highway for potential closure due to flooding following heavy rains.

Highways closed:

  • Highway 93 south of Henderson (closed May 14)

When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
