Clearwater to Clear Lake
Work through August
Crews continue to resurface (mill and overlay) and improve Highway 24 from south of I-94 in Clearwater to Highway 10 in Clear Lake, includes shoulders and turn lanes; repair storm drainage; reconstruct pedestrian sidewalks and approaches in Clear Lake between Clark St and Hwy 10; widen the turn-radius at the State Street/Hwy 24 intersection in Clear Lake, and upgrade the signals systems at:
- I-94 interchange ramps (Exit 178) in Clearwater
- County Rd 75 in Clearwater
- County Rd 8 (River Rd SE) in Clear Lake township
When complete in late August, the $1.8 million project will result in a smoother ride, extend the life of the roadway, and improve traffic flow, safety and accessibility.
- Motorists: Periodic lane or shoulder closures with use of narrow temporary lanes; no parking along Hwy 24 in Clear Lake. Check 511mn.org for current road conditions.
- Pedestrians: Day work, expect sidewalk closures in Clear Lake (only one side of roadway at a time)
- Access to businesses and residencies to be maintained, follow directional signing
