For many, a long road to recovery remains in place following Northland flooding.  While it is a daunting task, each day can bring a little progress.  We received word from The Minnesota Department Of Transportation that more roads that had been closed are becoming passable once again.  According to their press release:

Four highways remain closed in Northeastern Minnesota after last week’s storm that caused massive flooding. Three of the four closed highways have short detours in place. The only highway that remains completely closed is Highway 210 within the boundaries of Jay Cooke State Park.

“We have been receiving many calls and emails from people wondering if they can get to Duluth and surrounding areas,” said Duane Hill, MnDOT District 1 engineer. “The only areas they can’t enter are some of the flood-damaged neighborhoods in Fond du Lac and Jay Cooke State Park.”
