Caption

The Minnesota River overflows road high water limit due to Spring flooding, closing HWY 101 in Shakopee to some 24,000 vehicles that cross daily. Commuters are reaching their frustration and financial limits as detours add as much as 40 additional miles on to their drive. This river crossing was closed 20 days last Spring and 17 days in the Fall due to flooding. At the time this photograph was taken the water level was at 715’ which is 7’ over flood stage and expected to peak in the next couple days.
