How to drive a diverging diamond interchange
Motorists on Stearns CR 120 will proceed through the first traffic signal, and follow their lane to the opposite side of the road. Drivers accessing Hwy 15 will turn left onto the ramps. Through traffic will continue to the second traffic signal and follow their lane back to the right side of the road.
Pavement markings, signs and signals direct motorists through the intersections.
Motorists on Hwy 15 will use the ramps and traffic signals to access CR 120.
Traffic impacts through early November
- Temporary signalized intersection at 23rd Street is closed and will be removed
- Periodic lane or shoulder closures for wrap-up work
About this project
Construction on the new interchange began in July 2012, and is to be opened to traffic in November 2013.
The project is being constructed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), in partnership with Stearns County and the cities of Sartell and St. Cloud.
The area around this intersection has been rapidly developed over the years. New healthcare facilities and retail businesses have increased the amount of traffic, which warranted the development of this project.
