Clearwater to Clear Lake

Work through August

Expect roadwork on Hwy 24 from Clearwater to Clear Lake through August 2018.

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.
