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.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth. 
    • pikeandchester
      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
