ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has closed three locks on the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities to recreational boats due to high water flows.
The closures affect the Upper and Lower St. Anthony Falls locks in downtown Minneapolis, and Lock and Dam 1 near Minnehaha Park between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
For safety, the Corps closes these locks to recreational boaters when river flows exceed 30,000 cubic feet per second, and it closes them to commercial traffic at 40,000 cubic feet per second.
The Corps says it expects to closures could last around six days.
