ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - Since the Minnesota shutdown ended this week, some state parks have re-opened for day and overnight use but the DNR says people should call ahead to find out if camping spots are open. Most rest areas along highways in the state should be open by the weekend, but some have delayed opening until storm damage is cleaned up. Fishing and hunting licenses are again being sold at sporting goods stores, bait shops and through the DNR. Road construction has resumed at many sites including the mega project on I-35 in Duluth. The 26 sites and museums operated by the Minnesota Historical Society will open again on Saturday. The state lottery has resumed sales and all state agencies are back to full strength. Most of the 22 thousand state employees who were laid off for nearly three weeks during the shutdown have already returned to their jobs.
