A re-striping project will bring lane closures to Highway 169 in both directions between County Road 18 in Shakopee and Pioneer Trail in Eden Prairie this weekend. The roadway was re-striped to three lanes after spring flooding shut down a number of roads in the south metro. By Monday, Highway 169 will return to two lanes in each direction.
Scott County officials are busy preparing for the next big flood.
On Tuesday, officials and staff members outlined the problems their communities experienced during a very wet June, including road washouts, farm field erosion, shoreline damage, impassible roads, and flooded homes.
