According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Highway 41 will close between Highway 169 and Chaska Boulevard at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21, due to the rising water levels of the Minnesota River. Highway 41 will remain closed until the water recedes and any damage to the road can be repaired. Motorists can expect additional traffic on the Highway 101 river crossing in Shakopee.
A large part of the Shakopee Fire Department’s mission is to serve the community through outreach and education programs. From the annual water fights to Fire Prevention Week, the Fire Department participates in events year-round to educate residents on fire safety and create ties with the community. The department hosts its annual open house in October.
