140 has actually been closed for quite a while where 147 intersects to 212 in Chaska - it is tough getting around out this way frown.gif

Correct!

140 is also closed.

Basically every road, including the little dirt ones, is closed that is north of 212 and south of 5. If you need to be anywhere north of the river you have to take 5 and if you want to be south of the river you can head south out of Cologne and go to 169 in Jordan.

I am not sure how long it will be but roomer has it that it will be 6 weeks.

Also a heads up. Yesterday I thought I might be able to make it threw on 212 and I got pulled over by the cops. She was real nice but informed me that there will ONLY be local traffic allowed.

Just wait, 284 from Wac to Cologne is also closing in about a month. You will need a helocopter to get into Wacoina.

Guys, 212 will only be closed for a month, but then that is when 284 will close. Other options for for Western Carver County Folk to to take 140 east to County 43 North to County 10/Engler Blvd and take that east into Chaska.

This does suck. But in a year or two when 212 is finally done, it'll all be worth it...for awhile until it really starts to grow out in God's country!!

I get to drive from Lakeville to Hutch every day (at least for a while yet) and I forgot until I got to Chaska on Monday. It really only took an extra 10 minutes or so to go up to 7. Changed my route through Jordan now though and there sure is a lot of traffic that way too (assumably for the same reason I'm there). My wife is having a tough time getting to downtown too with the work on Cedar and the 35W/62 work about to get into fully swing so it's not just you guys on 212.

Milling off the old blacktop, adding turn lanes, and prepping the site where the New 212/312 will connect to it. Pain in the A##, but it needed to be done. Some sections of 212 were in pretty bad shape. I just wish they would have done a little more planning. It's almost impossible to get through Chaska. Morning or evening! mad.gif

It is a pain. I was on my way to work on friday morning, and witness as head on crash by hwy 25. Man, what a reality check. It was the car in front of me that was hit. Everyone ended up ok.

I have been taking back roads to jordan, from cologne, to get to shakopee. The problem is, its adding 15 mins on the time. Ya there is not traffic, but man, i cant wait till they get it all back to normal.

I was in cologne on Suday for a grad party and came through belle plaine on my way there...on the way home I noticed 212 was closed and I had no clue how to get back to Shakopee without backtracking to BP or Waconia....so I played dumb and took 212....made it all the way through without a problem...good thing it was a sunday I guess. There still were a bunch of cars on it for being closed though.

It was definitely closed....there were a few spots where they made us get off the main road and take temporary parralell gravel roads where they have it dug up

I'm sure I got lucky...i could tell I wasn't supposed to be on it

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
