Flood waters washed out a portion of Wadena County State Aid Highway 30 between Central Lakes College and the Crow Wing River Bridge causing the highway department to close the road, according to a news release.
"The road will be closed indefinitely until repairs can be made," Engineer Joel Ulring said in the release.
This section of severely damaged road is along the Crow Wing River and the Vintage Golf Course north of Staples. The highway department is repairing several damaged roadways, according to Ulring, and appreciates people's patience and understanding.
"The road will be temporarily repaired and opened as soon as possible," he said.
People can contact the highway department at (218) 631-7636 with questions.
