MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The recent bouts of rainy weather mean people can’t travel up and down the Mississippi River as far as they may like.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed three of the Minneapolis locks to recreational traffic over the weekend.

It could be a week before the river is low enough to be safe.

Commercial traffic can still get through.

This is the third time this summer that the Corps has had to restrict parts of the river.
