DNR closes access to Minnesota River in Jordan, citing safety concerns

The Department of Natural Resources has closed the Thompson Ferry Public Water Access on the Minnesota River in Jordan. Recent river bank slumping caused extensive damage to the boat ramp, creating unsafe conditions. 

Until the Thompson Ferry site can be repaired, boaters seeking access to the Minnesota River can use the public water accesses in the cities of Belle Plaine and Carver. The DNR does not yet know how long it will take to repair the Thompson Ferry site.
