MN River crossing in Jordan

The bridge over the Minnesota River, a portion of County Road 9, can flood during heavy rain and ice melts.

The Minnesota River Crossing between Jordan and Carver closed at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, because of high water.

Due to heavy rains, upwards of 6-8 inches of rain in Mankato and places west, the Minnesota River will reach flood stage again, Carver County said in a news release. The last recorded measurement at Jordan was 25 feet; 26 feet causes the crossing to close. The river is expected to crest at 31.7 feet at the end of the week.
