With heavy spring runoff from melting snow causing water levels to rise in area streams and ditches, St. Louis County Public Works crews are closely monitoring County roads. Conditions are improving. As of Friday, May 3 four roads remain closed due to high water.

Roads closed to traffic due to high water:

Public Works crews also have identified other County roads that have water on them, but are still considered passable. Signs have been put up at these locations identifying there is water on the roadway. Motorists are urged to use caution.

Public Works crews will continue to monitor these and other roads throughout the County, however motorists should remember that road conditions and water depth can change rapidly. Anyone who encounters a dangerous road condition is asked to call 9-1-1.

Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office reminds people to use caution around – and to keep children away from – areas of flowing water. Unseen culverts can pose a danger or drowning hazard.
