Part of Minnesota Highway 244 in Mahtomedi will be closed next week as crews work to repair a sinkhole caused by a drainage pipe that failed. Both directions of Minnesota 244 between Old Wildwood Road and Birchwood Road will close beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, weather permitting, and could remain closed for up to seven days, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Crews expect to reopen the road by 6 a.m. June 24. Motorists should follow the posted detour signs, plan accordingly and give themselves more time to reach their destinations, MnDOT officials said. The price to repair the highway, also known as Wildwood Road, is $197,000.
