Traffic rerouted in Chaska due to water main break, sinkhole

Access to businesses in the area is limited.

A overnight water main break has created a rather significant travel disruption in Chaska, as Pioneer Trail is closed in both directions near the break. 

Specifically, Pioneer Trail is closed both ways from Village Road to Hwy. 41, and businesses in that immediate area, including Kwik Trip, Lakeview Clinic and Jonathan Square, can only be accessed from the intersection of Hwy. 41 and Pioneer Trail.

The water main break also created a sinkhole that city workers are repairing. 

It's not entirely clear when Pioneer Trail will reopen, but you can follow Chaska police on Facebook and Twitter, and the City of Chaska should also provide updates to Facebook and Twitter
