MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reopening its three Minneapolis locks to recreational traffic Monday.
The Upper and Lower St. Anthony Falls locks in downtown Minneapolis and Lock and Dam 1 near Minnehaha Park between Minneapolis and St. Paul were closed on April 11 due to high water flows.
The Corps says that while forecast flows have fallen to a point where locks can be safely opened for recreational boating, it’s encouraged that boaters continue to use caution in the area due to high Mississippi River currents.
