ST. CLOUD, Minn. –  (4:49 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed Hwy 22, south of Richmond, between the Chain of Lakes. Currently, the Hwy is closed from Horseshoe Lake to Mud Lake due to water over the road and will remain closed until further notice. Motorists should seek alternate routes. Additional closures may be necessary as changing conditions are anticipated.   

When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
