MN DOT has closed U.S. Highway 10 near Little Falls, because Mississippi River flooding has severely damaged approaches to a bridge. The closure affects the highway in both directions.


MnDOT spokesman Kevin Gutknecht says an ice jam got lodged under the bridge, and water undermined the bridge and the roadway. A photo of the site, released by state officials, shows significant water damage under the road surface.
