Culvert failure forces road closure near Side Lake

St. Louis County. Submitted

A portion of Highway 5 south of Side Lake is temporarily closed after a culvert failed causing a partial washout.

Highway 5 is closed from approximately 0.8 miles south of Side Lake to about 1.5 miles north of Green Rock Road. Detour signs are being posted directing travelers to use Green Rock Road, Sturgeon Road and McCarthy Beach Road as an alternate route.

St. Louis County Public Works expects repairs may take about a week and will provide an update when the road is able to reopen.
