ALBERT LEA, Minn. – Floodwaters have closed a portion of Main Street in Albert Lea.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says standing water from recent rainfall has shut down westbound traffic and put a detour in place at Clark Street.  The eastbound lanes of Main Street remain open and the traffic will return to the westbound lanes as soon as the water recedes.
