Work scheduled to begin late-April
All who travel Highway 15 in Stearns County are encouraged to attend an open house about a major road project that will reconstruct Highway 15 between St. Augusta and Kimball in 2019. While Highway 15 will be closed to through traffic for about three months, all businesses will remain accessible throughout the project.
The public open house will be held from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, at Maine Prairie Township Hall, located at the Highway 15/Dellwood Road intersection, 7551 Dellwood Rd., 55353.
Open house attendees will be able to learn about the project’s schedule, work to be performed, detour and traffic plans, and take home project information. A project layout will be on display, and MnDOT staff will be available to answer any questions. No presentation is planned, and guests are invited to arrive at any time.
The project and the detour will begin late-April and all lanes will open late-July 2019, dependent upon weather. All local businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the project.
The project will reconstruct Highway 15 between County Road 136 in St. Augusta and Highway 55 in Kimball, replace or repair underground culverts, install new mumble strips, and improve accessibility at the Highway 15/County Road 47/County Road 136 intersection in St. Augusta.
When complete, the project will improve the ride along 12 miles of Highway 15, and improve drainage, safety and accessibility.
