(Mankato, MN) – Flooding has closed Highway 93 yet again.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced Monday the highway is closed to from Highway 169 to Henderson due to rising waters from the Rush River.

This is the fifth time that Highway 93 has closed this year.

Motorists should use Highway 19 from Highway 169 to Henderson as an alternate route.  However, Highway 19 also has the potential to close later this week if the forecasts for the Minnesota River remain.
