The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed more roads ahead of flooding in the Twin Cities from last week's record rains.
Exit ramps to and from northbound Interstate 35W and Black Dog Road are closed, although the southbound exits are open.
MnDOT spokesman J.P. Gillach said the state is monitoring three other sites as well, including Highway 101 near Highway 13 in Savage and northbound Interstate 35W in Burnsville.
"We're also monitoring the Stillwater Lift Bridge, and we don't expect that to close in the short term, we're just monitoring it this time, and if it is closed, we'll get information out as quickly as possible," Gillach said.
Gillach said officials think there's a 50-50 chance that high water will eventually close the bridge in Stillwater.
Highways 101 and 41 in the southwest Twin Cities remain closed, along with U.S. Highway 169 between St. Peter and LeSeuer. The high water is expected to crest in much of central Minnesota this weekend.
