Meanwhile, Washington Co. (Minn.) officers were hustling to direct water patrol deputies to warn boaters away from the area too.

Authorities on both sides of the river scrambled to close on-ramps and warn motorists streaming in from east and west.

Two westbound lanes were re-opened at 9:50 p.m. At that point, traffic was backed up beyond mile marker 8 into Wisconsin.

Responding with Hudson Police, fire and ambulance were North Hudson officers along with both the Wisconsin and Minnsota state patrols.
