Highway 71 in Sauk Centre closes Aug. 5–7


ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists travelling Highway 71 in Sauk Centre will encounter delays and a detour as the road remains closed near the Lake Wobegon Trail until 7 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7.


The road was originally scheduled to reopen at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6. The extended closure is needed to allow adequate cure time before the pavement can safely carry traffic.


A signed detour will direct motorists along County Road 186/12th Street South, County Road 72/Beltline Road and County Road 17/Sinclair Lewis Ave.
