City of Red Wing

Park and Road Closures Due to Rising Water Beginning June 1, 2012

Thursday, May 31 2012 12:00 AM

The City of Red Wing Public Works Department will be closing Levee Road between Broad and Jackson Streets as well as Ikata Drive beginning Friday morning. These roads will remain closed until the water recedes and roads are safe for travel.

The boat ramp at Colvill Park will be closed today.  Areas of Colvill Park will be restricted as needed on Friday and Saturday, with the possibility of complete closure on Sunday morning.  Staff will continue to monitor river readings and if the level reaches 12', the park will be closed.  If levels remain below 12', only portions of the park will be restricted.

Barricades and signs will be in place to restrict access as needed. City crews appreciate the cooperation and patience of neighbors, drivers and pedestrians during this time of inconvenience.
