Highway 95 detour lifted; lane closures continue east of Cambridge
Minnesota federal economic stimulus road project

ST. CLOUD, Minn. - The detour on Highway 95 east of Cambridge has been lifted, reports the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The detour was necessary to allow crews to replace a box culvert at a stream between Skogman Lake and Fannie Lake.

Federal economic stimulus road project Motorists should remain alert for lane closures on Highway 95 as road preservation work continues between Isanti County Highway 2 east of Cambridge to the Isanti/Chisago county line.

Crews will resurface the roadway, including shoulders; construct shoulders and turn-lanes; and install or repair culverts and guardrails.

Traffic will be single-lane through the work zone controlled by a pilot car and flaggers. Work will be done Monday through Friday during daylight hours and occasionally on Saturday.

Work operations will suspend Fourth of July weekend from Friday, July 3, until Monday, July 6.

The project is scheduled for completion by mid-July.

Hardrives Inc. of Rogers is the prime contractor for the $2.6 million road preservation project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Traveling safely through the work zone

Pilot Car Safety

This construction project will be using a signed car to lead traffic through the construction work area at a safe speed. This car is called a pilot car. A “PILOT CAR FOLLOW ME” sign will be displayed on the rear of this vehicle.

There will be only one lane of traffic open during this construction project. A flagger will release traffic to follow the pilot car to the other end of construction where a second flagger will be holding traffic from the opposing lane. Traffic will only be released to a pilot car going in the same direction.

If you are entering the roadway where crews are working by a driveway or intersection, you must wait for the pilot car and vehicles following to pass you. Then you must travel in the same direction as the pilot car.

Do not travel in the opposite direction of the pilot car and the vehicles following it.
