A section of Minnesota Highway 23 damaged by flooding in June reopened Friday, July 13.

The damaged section, located at the south fork of the Nemadji River, was impassable after flooding the weekend of June 16 buckled the pavement. The highway has been closed since June 17 due to flood damage.

The repairs are considered temporary. According to a press release, the Minnesota Department of Transportation plans to do the permanent repair on the damaged segment next summer during the same time the highway must be closed for two other previously scheduled projects.

By doing all three projects next summer, the total time Minnesota Highway 23 needs to be closed will be greatly reduced.
